  Actually I had it setup to only use 0 (Normal) and 1 (Idle). I didn't
think anyone would use it for Fixed length or server classes. Oops. :)
  I'm not gonna bother updating it since I'm working on the new client
now. Just throw it in normal priority and that'll be enough. 
  Another tip, if you wanna make it use more of the normal class, you can
set it to a highest class delta. Use the switch -n +31. It'll set it to be
the highest level in the normal or idle class. (the lowest is -31 btw).
  Actually if you really really want to make it go into a higher prioirty
class, even while the program is running you can use the program C-A-D
Commander, it can force programs to go into different prioirities on the
