all positive but "terminate qjackctl and leave the jackd rumning"...

iif jackd was started from under qjackctl, it will get killed upon
qjackctl destruction--this is one side-effect since qjackctl has
migrated to qt4 (qjackctl >= 0.3.0) so it's not kind of a mis-feature of
this particular release. it's been there for quite a couple of years now
