Well, if this is by design, then I guess I need a new method of running
folding at home -- whether I run it as root or as a new user, even at
IDLEPRIO and +19, the folding at home process still slows down other things
on the system.  The input lag is no longer present, and the process does
show up as 'nice', but Compiz drops to half its framerate.  It seems odd
to me that a process cannot simply yield its CPU cycles to other
processes regardless of user.  Will I now have to arbitrarily assign a
CPU time percentage to the user?

I also figured out the "is not in Linux" issue: my marked-as-duplicate
bug had been attached to linux, I made a 'freudian slip' and reached
this bug by the /+source/linux/ path, which is not attached to this
'boinc' bug at all.
