I think I read somewhere you can select the connection from inside
audacity, but not for other jack clients that were not there when
audacity started. 

The very "unjack" behavior of being connected only while playing is one
of the reasons I have not yet built a jack enabled audacity in Planet
CCRMA. I don't know if the culprit is portaudio itself or the code
inside audacity. Well, maybe I should build one anyway.
