Thanks Brian.  

Actually I took the time to look it up myself (cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg)
and found that I have both the -rt kernel and the -preempt kernel
installed.  However, the last time I did any editing in GRUB was before
GRUB 2.x  In GRUB 2.x you have to edit /etc/default/grub NOT the
grub.cfg file. 

So I found now GRUB looks for a SHIFT key held down during the delay
period (default = 10 secs. )  so now I will checkout using each of the
kernels to see if I can get rid of the few xruns I have. Which is only
about 20 / hour on the generic kernel but I am running 256 frames/period
and 3 periods/buffer.
