So the output of /etc/init.d/rtirq status is the same as in the other 
mail? That's really weird. The only thing I can think of is that 
something else (another script?) is prioritizing stuff too (like the 
nvidia and ohci_hcd processes). The steps between the priorities 
strengthens my suspicion, it should be 5 but some processes do not get a 
prio that can be divided by 5 (like nvidia which has prio 82). No one on 
the Ubuntu Studio list encountered the same issue? Maybe Ubuntu (or 
Ubuntu Studio) prioritizes processes somewhere else.
