Do you perhaps use the sharetree and have reprioritize enabled?  One 
easy debugging step would be to set KEEP_ACTIVE to true in the 
execd_params and then look for what the priority setting is in the 
config file.  If that number is correct, then the only way the priority 
will later change is through the PTF.
