--- Comment #1 from Ed Maste <emaste at freebsd.org> ---
It's not clear from your report but my guess is that you're using csh/tcsh and
are thus using the built-in nice, which does not accept -n.


% which nice
% nice -n 20 date

nice: shell built-in command.
> nice -n 20 date
nice: Badly formed number.

Have a look at the builtin(1) manual page.
