Which version are you wokring with?

Versions of pulseaudio older than 0.15 are quite broken with regards to 
jack support.

I had to upgrade my whole system from Fedora 10 to 11 to get all the 
associated dependency upgrades that v0.15 or greater require. It's 
probably not worth testing with an older version as the latest have a 
lot of fixes and handle jack a lot more effectively.
