Huh? Here, if I start it like this: "timidity -ig -Oj some.mid" I can see audio 
ports in qjackctl; if I start it in server mode (using -iA and no filename) I 
see ALSA sequencer ports too.

I think a good place to make it start automatically would be the "Execute script 
after Startup" in qjackctl's Setup dialog (Options tab).
