If libjack is compiled with dbus support it will first try to start jack
server through dbus. if it fails, it will fall back to the old
behaviour (reading ~/.jackdrc) and try to start jackd through it.

Starting it through dbus means activating the dbus object if not already
activated and strting the server. Calling any method of the dbus object,
"server start" in this case, autoactivates the object.
