If you are talking about the situation where it then leaves 3 zombies behind, and they can be gotten rid of by doing a kill -9 on the first one;  that problem seems to have gone away with the latest kernel and qjackctl updates.

I'm sorry that I can't help any more then that, as I don't have the time to (un)setup the system to make it break like that.  And, my technical abilities to track down the problem would be quite dismal.

Luckily, it seems to be working nicely now, but I'll be sure to pass on any problems that arise.

Thanks for posting this to the list.  You have writen a great GUI for jack, and I'd like to say thanks!
