from 5 minutes of testing it seems that there's at least one way to do
it.  it's not the same for Windows XP and 2000 though.  in 2000 it can
be done by creating a shortcut to gnubg with the following properties:

Target: cmd.exe /x /c "start /belownormal gnubg.exe"
Start in: c:\gammmon\gnubg

(change the "Start in:" setting to the directory where you have gnubg)

I'm not sure if the "/x" is needed, but it worked with it so I'd keep
it.  "/c" makes the command line prompt execute & exit, so it'll just
do its job (which is to run gnubg) and then close immediately.

in Windows XP "/x" should be changed to "/e:on" according to the
cmd.exe documentation.

it's the "start /belownormal" that does the trick.  you can change it
to "/low" if you want gnubg to have even less priority.
