two things.

1) the only way jackstart gets written into that file is if JACK was
   compiled to use capabilities. if you are using a JACK compiled for
   use with capabilities on a 2.6 kernel, something has gone seriously

2) setting JACK_NO_START_SERVER in your environment will prevent this

I would recommend figuring out the answer to (1) however. It implies
that either you built JACK incorrectly, or some Linux distribution
messed it up for you.
