[PD] Latency under Linux/Jack (again...)

Sorry, I didn't gave a lot of info:
-Intel core2duo T9500 (2.6 GHz)
-Ubuntu Lucid (32bit), with rt kernel (which is not rt, I never
understood this story...)
-last pd-ext from repo (which seems to be down since a while).
-RME Multiface I /HDSP expresscard
Of course jack run with -R. I repeat I don't have any problem to run
application with really good latency: yesterday, I forgot to increase
buffer as I worked on a 96000Hz Ardour session... I noticed I was
working at 5ms I/O after one hour recording and playing a lot of tracks,
and no xrun, no problems...
I also think it's not a good Idea to run pd as root... and I suppose
other application won't connect to jack if I run it as root also.
I noticed I had two times the @audio config (limits.conf, audio.conf).
You'll say: "better twice than nothing"... But maybe it generates a
conflict... I try
