Bug#141500: start-stop-daemon: --nicelevel doesn't work

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.9.20
Severity: normal

For some months, I've had an init script which uses the following
start-stop-daemon command to run setiathome as soon as my machine boots

# start-stop-daemon --start --verbose \
    --pidfile /home/tim/setiathome/pid.sah --chuid tim \
    --nicelevel 19 --exec /usr/bin/setiathome

This always worked fine until a couple of weeks ago, and since then it
has stopped working, and now that command produces very odd output:

Starting /usr/bin/setiathome...
start-stop-daemon: Unable to alter nice level by 19: Success

i.e. it seems to be incorrectly handling a successful system call.
