I misinterpreted your sed, when I skimmed it I thought you were just removing 
jobs marked as blocked, rather than dropping everything after the heading for 
blocked jobs.

If I rolled that into a script which, if the user hadn't supplied any 
arguments, trimmed everything from (and including) the header for blocked 
jobs down to (but not including) the number of blocked jobs then it would be 

Fortunately all those jobs have churned through the cluster now, but I'd still 
like to fix this before it happens again!

I'm tied up with trying to get a new commercial package going at the moment so
