Can you please check if starting qjackctl with XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity fixes the icon issue you mentioned?

If it does, then I have an idea on how to workaround this bug in Qt (the idea is to check not XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP, but rather whether the StatusNotifierWatcher cmdline ends with indicator-application-service).
