Yes. If not a bug, it's a feature that makes me not use beagle.

Fine. We have different opinions.

If beagle is unable to nice/renice the child processes it launches then
that is a blocker for me. If it's installed I'll remove it.

Regardless of whether one of us thinks it's either a bug or a feature:
You requested someone to show you how beagle doesn't work for anyone.
I've given you my use case. Knock yourself out.
