I looked at "man jackd" and saw -Z (no zombies). Adding this to my 
commandline like this:

/usr/bin/jackd -Z -R -P80 -m -dalsa -dhw:1 -r44100 -p512 -n3 -s -S &

makes things a little different. Now it seems that the

subgraph starting at ChucK timed out (subgraph_wait_fd=9, status = 0, 
state = Running, pollret = 0 revents = 0x0)

message *sometimes* doesn't kill chuck. However sometimes (most of the 
time) chuck still dies, but now with an extra line after the 
"subgraph..." one:

bad status (1) for client ChucK handling event (type = 5)

A working work-around seems to be to start/killall *qjackctl* and not 
*jackd* from my chuck-start-song-script. Only problem is that focus is 
then not at mu terminal window, but I guess some googleing will turn up 
some linux magic to fix this...
