So, are you saying that Maui is running the job, even when an 
insufficient funds error is returned? If so, this would be an issue with 
Maui -- unless you can see a behavior issue in Gold.

This documentation is for Moab, not Maui. The HOLD,HOLD syntax will not 
work in Maui, neither will the SERVER syntax.

What do the maui docs say to use here. Is JOBFAILUREACTION the right 
parameter to use with Maui (I know this parameter name has changed a few 
times over the years).

I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by this. Can you show me an 
example of the logging format that you think is wrong?
