I've run into this before.  As I have sufficient firewalls in place
outside of my fc5/ccrma box, I made the decision to run it without a
firewall - turned it off using some KDE/Gnome "services" tool.  Was
then able to boot with acpi=off, which solved similar xrun problems to
yours.  The acpi/iptables bug really ought to be hunted down and
squashed, but I'm afraid I'm not the guy to do it; if you can sanely
live without the firewall (you should be sure about that before doing
so), then I recommend doing so, just so you can turn acpi off.  Again,
acpi=off fixed similar xrun troubles on my dell inspiron 1150.
