Yes, either run fluidsynth as root, or:

1] get a lowlatency [andrews patches. i don't know if they are included
with 2.6 but i think only the preemt patches are in] and capabilities
patched kernel, compile and install it..
2] install jack
3] compile fluidsynth with jack support
4] start jack via jackstart [so it aquires RT privs] but as normal user
5] start fluidsynth as normal user
6] have stutterfree fun!

Works like a charm here..
