[PlanetCCRMA] jack_capture with jack 1.9.4 complains about nice value of "-10", wants "-20"

A while back there was mention that the negative nice values for jack
in /etc/security/limits.conf were superfluous.

However, for jack_capture-0.9.40-1.fc12.x86_64 wants a nice value of "-20"
but only gets "-10" .

Is this behavior in jack_capture a hold-over from Jack 1.0 days, and a
potential incompatibility for jack2?

Recording to "jack_capture_01.wav". Press <Return> or <Ctrl-C> to stop.
Warning. Could not set priority to -20, only -10.
You probably have wrong nice value in /etc/security/limits.conf.
