I have never seen any issues when the processing is done inside the
real-time thread (voice integration in Meego).
The issue is that the main thread and the client aren't real-time, and they
may not be able to provide data fast enough. Try with pa_cat -v
--latency-time-ms=1 and you will see the latency increase due to underflows
and changes in buffer sizes.
