yes... i was in on that thread. i get the jackstart sync pipe error
message when starting jackd with qjackctl, however it does start fine
despite the error. when starting jackd with the same parameters, but
from the commandline, i do not get the jackstart sync pipe error
message. perhaps it's a qjackctl bug?
