if you run on a recent kde, which i assume you are, I'll suggest you
setting your QjackCtl/Setup/Options as follows:

 [x] Execute script on Startup:
       artsshell -q terminate
 [x] Execute script after Startup:
       artsd -F 4 -S 4096 -a jack -m artsmessage -c drkonqi -l 3 -f &
 [x] Execute script on Shutdown:
       artsshell -q terminate
 [x] Execute script after Startup:
       killall artsd

this will make all aRTs applications slave to jackd, so you'll have the
extra bonus and best of both worlds. as a workaround it has been working
for me for quite some years ;)
