Bug Fixes

BZ#1035795
Previously, if the scheduler priority was not specified, the "tuna -t $PID -p OTHER" command failed with the following error:
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: 'OTHER'
This error occurred also when different parameters, such as RR or FIFO, were passed to the -p option. This bug has been fixed and the value error no longer occurs.
