Let's see if this is the first time my notorious warning message actually
helped to identify the issue. :)
Do you have a memory lock limit defined in /etc/security/limits.conf for
your user or a group your user belongs to?
Does increasing the limit to 512000 (or adding a limit) help the situation?
(note that you need to log out and login after you change the file to
activate the changes)
The limit row usually looks like this:
@audio - memlock 5120000
Where "audio" is the name of the group the limit is imposed on.
