not at all. ardour and qjackctl can coexist peacefully as ever.

the original issue on debate, as brought by Fons, was due to a probable
mishap caused by the new d-bus stuff in jack2 (aka jackdmp): apparently,
jackdbus is auto-starting the jackd service without regard to what's in
~/.jackdrc. it doesn't matter whomever wrote that file in the first
place, either ardour, qjackctl or even jackd itself. jackdbus is just
making a fool out of it :)
