The latter. I did try renicing Wine first, but no joy.

I am too, having seen the definition of SCHED_ISO, nonetheless that's 
what was reported. I haven't seen any other comments about using 
SCHED_ISO with audio apps except that one, so it gives me pause for concern.

And even then, SCHED_ISO is a long way off and may never be merged. 
Waiting for it wouldn't be helping users today, which is a bad thing IMHO.
