 * setpriority(2) says, in part,
 *      A zero value of who denotes the current process, process group, or
 *      user.
 * so what you actually did was you changed the priority of the renice
 * process itself.  (It then promptly died, so this didn't end up having a
 * whole lot of effect.)

I would submit that if the space matters, the option parser in renice
is broken; "-p449" should equal "-p 449"
