[Mauiusers] setting priorities

Hi,

I am trying to use setspri command to change priorities of the jobs 
running on the system. As per documentation, the value can go higher 
than 1000 if changing relative priority but it does not let me do that.
Example:
139811                   172972   100.0(24997:14797)   0.0(  0.0)
setspri -r 10000 139811

ERROR:  system priority must be in the range 0 - 1000

So I did the following:
139811                   172974*  100.0(24997:14797)   0.0(  1.3)

The overall priority change is 2. I do not get why is it so less or I 
need to tweak the maui config file to make it working.

Is there any other command to control priorities?

Thanks,
Abhi.
