What version of Ubuntu are you using? If its intrepid, when using the generic kernel, are you using the proprietary ATI drivers?

If yes to both questions, then I believe there maybe something wrong with the installation/setup of the ATI drivers and the realtime kernel. Without having any new ATI hardware to test with here myself, I can't be sure of whats going on. All I can suggest is to attempt to re-install fglrx-kernel-source, as well as installing the linux-headers-rt package, which should allow the kernel module for the ATI drivers to be built.

Hope this helps
