Check to see which version of jack-audio-connection-kit you have installed. 
The one from ccrma should be setting that automatically for you. Check
/etc/security/limits.conf, it should contain:

## Automatically appended by the Planet CCRMA jack-audio-connection-kit
* - rtprio 99
* - memlock 4194304
* - nice -10

If this is missing just add it (you will have to logout and login again
for the change to take effect).
