Thinking about this some more...

Now, I would imagine that these files are deleted when jack is stopped.

Once (maybe twice) someone else who lives here accidentally pulled the 
power to my machine. (I think it's time to get a UPS. If only I were 
wealthy...) I'm guessing it's possible that these files were not removed 
when jack was rudely interrupted, and that this caused the problem. 
Could that be the case?
