Arrow Task priority switching problem

Hi there,

I think this is NOT beta-related, so if I post this in beta thread I will probably get a telling-off

Could be a much older issue.
When I set WinUAE to be "Below Normal" in MINIMIZED mode (not to be confused with inactive mode), the following happened here: (win7)

- Below Normal was set. Good.

But...

Just a few seconds later, task priority automagically jumped to "Normal". (viewable in Task Manager)
This is really odd.

Test 2:
Main priority = Above Normal
Inactive window = Above Normal
Minimized window = Below Normal

Results when minimizing WinUAE window:
Remained at 'Below Normal' for a few seconds, then jumped up to Above Normal.

Somehow it appears to me that the value it jumps back to after correctly setting "Below Normal" depends on what was set in the other parameters...

[edit] Related issue:
If inactive window is set to "Pause emulation", and inactive window is evoked by middle-mouse button (as I have it here all the time), clicking into the window again does NOT unpause emulation.
Not a bug, but a feature?!
If it's a feature, LEAVE IT at that, but could you please make the "PAUSED" field clickable so that you do not need the keyboard to toggle pause mode? This would already do fine for me.

Priority bug seems to be some quite old bug.. Will be fixed and "FPS Unpause" will be also added.

Follow up to this...still a small issue (sorry, but sit comfortably: I will NOT call this a bug)

Preconditions:
- Windowed mode
- Pause emulation" is set for Minimized mode. (regardless of Disable sound emulation off or on; irrelevant here)

If WinUAE is now manually PAUSED using the Pause key, then minimized, bringing the window back up will auto-unpause WinUAE.

NOT a bug, but an enhancement, i. e. it could be sensible to override settings made for Minimized mode depending on Pause key state.

Suggestion:
- not manually paused - settings for MM work as normal
- manually paused BEFORE minimizing - only disabling sound emulation comes into effect (IF on), but bringing window back up does not unpause WinUAE

Hope that wasn't too complicated
This enhancement will at least not cause panic when playing rocket-fast action games and WinUAE instantly unpauses after restoring window
