Source code and binaries for linux/windows/osx here:
The Jack server sometimes crashes/freezes in ways which make users
restart the computer in order to use Jack again.
Users don't really have to restart the computer, but googling the
problem and finding a solution could take more time than restarting.
This is not very user friendly.
The problem exists on all platforms. It's not a bug in Jack per se,
it's how the program reacts when a client misbehave in certain ways.
This program kills Jack unconditionally. Executables for Linux, MacOS,
and Windows are provided. I strongly recommend that all programs using
Jack includes a program like this.
A better solution would be if Jack ran a watchdog, but it currently doesn't.
You are allowed to distribute this program any way you want. 
 Note that there might be copyright issues with the icon and the
quotes from the movie.
