Re: bitcoin auto-renice-ing

Hi, I run bitcoin at a nice level of 20 so as not to interfere with other tasks.  Every now and then, however, it seems to auto-adjust itself to nice level 2, or even 0.  It this by design?  Frankly, such a thing should be illegal for a linux application… it’s a bit odd to say the least.

Laszlo corrected this, but unfortunately it was too late to make it into 0.3.0.  There will probably be a 0.3.1 soon though.

The problem is I used PRIO_MIN, I should have used PRIO_MAX for the lowest priority.  The OS isn’t supposed to let you increase priority, so the PRIO_MIN ought to leave it at priority 0.
