Workaround for PulseAudio and Real-Time kernels

Written for KXStudio by falkTX on 2010-08-27

For those who being using KXStudio, you may have noticed this bug - https://bugs.launchpad.net/kxstudio/+bug/605362.

Basically pulseaudio will randomly crash on real-time kernels...

But, now there's a workaround!
The workaround came from this ubuntu bug report (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-rt/+bug/367671),
and basically all you need to do is create a new file '~/.pulse/daemon.conf', and add "rlimit-rttime = -1" to it.

I've been testing this for some time, and it really works! No more crashes on real-time kernels!

The 'pulse-jack' in KXStudio (or just my PPA) now auto-sets this parameter, so you probably already have this "fix" ;)
