For now, I'm sidestepping the issue by --

- switching to Jack2 (better stability when pulse doesn't keep up);
- using pulse-jack from the falkTX PPA [1];
- adding 'pulse-jack' as the jack post-startup script.

Jack server starts, bounces pulse and automatically connects pulse <--> jack. So far it's brilliant :)  Later I'll make a separate jack config for performances, which will not reactivate pulse.
