sorry for the very late followup. i was just browing through some older

the message comes from JACK itself, and is caused by use on a system
where one or both of two things are occuring:

  1) the user has managed to get a JACK client started with an 
       environment where PATH does not include the directory
       where the JACK server is installed.

  2) the system has attempted to fix a potential security leak
       in popen(3) by resetting PATH before executing the 
       command supplied as an argument (OS X does this)

JACK 0.109.3 has fixed these issues.
