Nope, it is a bug. Qjackctl is terminating jack rather abruptly and it
does not have a chance to remove the pipes and stuff that it creates in
/var/lib/jack/tmp. Those left over files are owned by the previous owner
and can't be removed by the new one. 

There is a workaround for this problem (thanks to Kjetil) and I have it
working here in a newer version of jack but I have not released it yet.

In the meantime is it safe to put "rm /var/lib/jack/tmp/*" in the
shutdown script in qjackctl?
