Many thanks for this.  If that's the case, let's take the Intel HDA out 
of the equation, shall we?  I got the UCA202 specifically so I could 
route my analogue instruments (Roland MKS-70, Alesis SR16, 
electrified/cutaway classical guitar with a load of Boss pedals) into 
the system so might as well use the headphone monitor on that and remove 
the kernel module for the onboard card.

Think I'll post my process table next time I'm booted into the RT kernel 
to see if anyone says "hey, THAT's not supposed to be there!"
