That should not really happen.
If it does, then it's probably because you don't have
"pulse-audio-module-jack" installed, or not configured.
"module-jack-sink" and "module-jack-source" should be loaded after
jack is started but before running any non-jack applications.
If you use QJackCtl to start Jack, then you can load the modules
automatically by adding the following line to:
"Setup > Options > Exectute script after startup"
pactl load-module module-jack-sink channels=2; pactl load-module
module-jack-source channels=2; pacmd set-default-sink jack_out
Of course, you only need this if you want to run non-jack audio
applications while Jack is running.
