The use case is about a jackd that was *not* started
by qjackctl. Release 0.3.4 does the right thing, I
just hope 0.3.5 does the same.

The other case, starting a jackd from qjackctl and
leave it running when qjackctl exits would be useful
as well, and earlier versions could do this. But I
remember your comment about qt4's subprocess class
making this impossible. Damn qt4.

BTW a non-qt version of qjackctl would be welcome.
