I don't see the same problem on my server. But here are
a few things to try:

1) If you want childsplay to always run "nice", edit the
script /usr/bin/childsplay  and change it from:

 	python /usr/lib/childsplay/childsplay.py $* &


    nice python /usr/lib/childsplay/childsplay.py $* &

2) Try out the latest version of childsplay, which I'm
getting ready to add to the next minor release of K12LTSP:


3) It may make a difference if your verynice.conf has
    "python" rather than "/usr/bin/python", and you probably
    want it as a "badexe" rather than "hungryexe":

 	badexe "python"
