Apparently you can circumvent the wrapper script that stops suspends PA and
starts qctljack.  If you run qjackctl.bin directly it avoids it.  I learned
this from this Ubuntu Forum thread, post #5...

This along with the package pulseaudio-module-jack I believe you should find
things more compatible.

Disclaimer, I haven't really researched this module much and I haven't even
attempted getting it to work.  But since I ran across the information I
wanted to pass it on to you.
