Audio no longer feasible with vanilla Ubuntu + Studio packages (?)

Today I did some ISO testing and here are the results:

  - Studio installed from ubuntustudio-alternate iso works fine.

  - Studio "installed" from ubuntu-desktop iso + ubuntustudio-audio 
metapackage is a disaster. Mountains of xruns even when doubling the 
latencies reached with no xruns on a studio install. While this has 
always led to a non-optimal result, it used to work and was good enough 
for many (like ttoine and I), with the advantage to stay close from a 
standard ubuntu install.
Note: I did the usual setup in groups and limits.conf.

Did I miss something or did something really change a lot between 10.04 
and 10.10, making ubuntu+ubustu-metapackages a non-option?
I like Ubuntu's package selection! I like the new font and desktop 
polish! I like having a standard install! I like network-manager even if 
it means losing 1ms latency!

Thanks for your help :)
