I think QJackCtl shows all xruns that happen in jack. Whether
PulseAudio is being used or not shouldn't make any difference.

As for drop-outs in PulseAudio, QJackCtl won't show those, unless they
also cause xruns in jack. PulseAudio doesn't currently provide any
mechanism for getting notifications about drop-outs.
