[Mauiusers] MAXNODES broken?

Does the MAXNODES limit actually work in recent versions of Maui? I've
tried 3.2.6p9, p10, and p11-snap.1090086588, but none behave as
expected. I've added this to my maui.cfg:
CLASSCFG[testq] MAXNODE=2 MAXJOB=100 MAXPROC=10
When I run diagnose -c testq (after submitting a single job), I see:
Name Priority Flags QDef QOSList*
PartitionList Target Limits
testq 0 [NONE] [NONE] [NONE]
[NONE] 0.00 MAXJOB=1:100 MAXNODE=0:2 MAXPROC=1:10
So, it looks like maui notices that a job is running, and it realizes
that it's a single-proc job, but it doesn't increment the number of
nodes in use. Further poking proves I can submit, and maui will
schedule, jobs that use more than 2 nodes (as long as they don't exceed
the 10-processor limit).
Is this a bug, or am I missing something?
