[GE users] nice values and sge 6.0

I could be totally wrong, but I think this is what is going on:

If you really want nice values you need to turn off "dynamic 
reprioritization" within N1GE/SGE 6.

 From what I recall there are 2 things you need to change

(1) execd_param NO_REPRIORITIZATION=true (sge_conf manpage) at queue level

(2) set REPRIORITIZE_INTERVAL to 00:00:00 (sched_conf manpage) within 
the scheduler configuration

After doing that you should see your queue level nice values start to be 
expressed I belive.
