The 2.6.39 kernel I got from Aptosid isn't an RT kernel.

Yup bugs my eyes. My monitor was doing 1280x10124 @ 87HZ before the
kernel upgrade ... When I checked, the Nouveau driver isn't even
installed on the machine. I saw some bug reports for the Nouveau driver
at debian.org saying something about the kernel preventing the driver
from getting EDIT info from the monitor, so the driver assumes a save
I can use video=1280x1024 on the kernel command line to get that
resolution, but it's still using 60hz refresh.
So I set my previous kernel to be GRUBs default and will only select
2.6.39 when I need to.
