Silly default "USER=fred" in /etc/default/jackd

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
jack-audio-connection-kit (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: jack

Quoting /etc/default/jackd:
> # The jackd process will run under this user
> USER=fred

This hardly makes any sense. There doesn't seem to be anything related to jackd in /etc/init.d anyway (or where should I be looking?)

$ lsb_release -rd

Release: 10.04

Oops, sorry, that one removes /etc/init.d/jackd not /etc/default/jackd. (Is the code correct, is that what it's supposed to do?)
