but please provide a way to disable this autostart-audio feature.
(I don't know any audio app which starts jack for me

consider as well this use case:
  - a user starts pd (jack is not running)
  - pd starts a jackd process
  - user closes pd (admitting that the bug I reported is fixed)
  - user launches firefox and gets no audio from it unless (s)he kills 
the jackd process

very annoying for those who are not familiar with how to use your 
browser with jack etc..
