The double click action is really annoying, given, that often you've to
click first on the systray to get the focus on it, and then, the second
click takes the action. A way to often for my taste, now, I've stoped
qjackctl and therewith quit jackd, when I just wont to hide the qjackctl
UI. Very annoying. Please consider to remove this action (I'll remove it
anyway locally, now)
