Don't do irc much I would guess. There are three kinds of jack and in some 
cases it does matter which one is running. So if ardour starts jackd but 
you need jackdbus for some reason like using netjack2 for example. then 
jackdbus can not start. This is very confusing for users. We get too many 
people on our support channel with this kind of problem.

I understand this never happens in your particular setup (doesn't happen 
in mine either), but it does happen often enough to be worth having 
something that can just fix it without long explanations.
