So I guess it is because the oldpriority=_.int(REQUEST.oldpriority)-1)
doesn't work.
The values (before the <dtml-call>-statement is:

When the script has been called the values are:
priority=2 (and this should be 1)


Two things:

1) Your second example says "priority=2" but I think it meant
"oldpriority=2" (or 1).  Is that a verbatim cut-and-paste, or is it just a
typing error?

2) You give the values "when the script has been called" but you don't say
if those are the actual values that are returned by the form itself.  In
other words, if you think you are getting the wrong data from the form, you
need to make sure the form contains and returns the right values.  If it
doesn't, you need to get the form built correctly first.  If it does, you
need to make sure you are extracting the vaues from the form correctly.

When this part is working correctly - and not before - then you can go on to
look at the database method and see if it is actually constructed correctly
