Surely this particular issue can be disabled?

Dbus support is critical to making sure jack2 and pulse audio work 
together ootb without having to use a workaround loader script.

I thought, I also read that it's a compile time option too so if you 
don't particularly want it then you can disable dbus support in qjackctl 
before starting.
