Thanks, I'll give these different techniques a shot, I'm sure one of them  
will work. I'm still a bit baffled as to why the GUI for qjackctl was  
changed at all to remove the ability to force quit. It worked fined in  
Hardy, but with Jaunty the ability to just hit the 'X' button on the  
windows and close it is now gone, along with the ability to right click and  
hit 'force quit'. It's the same for any windows that JACK opens up, such as  
the message window. Before, you could close it by hitting the 'X' button,  
but now you must close it by hitting the 'Messages' button on the GUI  
itself. Did they just want to make sure people were using the GUI to do  
these things?
