[Mauiusers] Maui not honouring standing reservations

I've been having problems with standing reservations. Under certain
conditions--it appears to happen only when Maui is restarted, and so
only if jobs are queued at the time--Maui does not honour the standing
reservations I have configured.
I am using Maui 3.2.6p11 with Torque 1.2.0p3. (On an older cluster I am
and have been using standing reservations with Maui 3.2.5p2 with OpenPBS
without any troubles.)
The following snippet is relevant:
Since implementing this I have been finding non-mars jobs on hosts in
this list. (This is a problem because these nodes are "politically"
distinct, and we have an agreement with the owners that only their jobs
will run here.) The problem seems to happen when Maui is restarted. If
I have Maui report the reservations via "mdiag -r" it seems to recognise
I have looked into using partitions as well, but the documentation seems
to suggest that this is not the way to go.
Thoughts? This has been driving me nuts for a while.
