Qt sets the class name to argv[0] by default -- so qjackctl should
already have its class set sensibly (or semi-sensibly -- it's called
qjackctl.real on Debian because there's a wrapper script that runs
qjackctl; Ubuntu may have the same thing).

You can use xprop to see what the class has been set to: run xprop,
click on the qjackctl window, and look for WM_CLASS in the output.
I'd be a bit surprised if it's not getting set at all, but maybe it's
set to something unusual, or Unity's doing something more magical than
you think...
