i was having the same issue after updating from 12.04 to 12.10, found this workaround:
http://debian.2.n7.nabble.com/Jackd2-Pulseaudio-negotiation-failing-td2072650.html

worked for me.

Try killing the pulseaudio server. It will be restarted automatically, but after that, starting jackd has worked for me.

killall pulseaudio

or

killall -9 pulseaudio

Does it work for you? Might be that something has to be started before pulseaudio to get everything straight.

Can you help with this problem?
