[Mauiusers] numerous problems with reservations

Given:
  setres -c priya -d +8:00:00:00 -s +12:00:00 -f priya -n priya ALL

Shouldn't that reservation all nodes with "priya" for 8 days 12 hours from now?

I set that yesterday, and 'showres -n' showed the correct nodes, 520 of them
with the "priya" feature.

Today, that reservation has grow itself to 1388 nodes!


So now I'm trying to set a second reservation, exactly like the first but with
TASKS==520 and it is failing to set?

# setres -c priya -d +7:00:00:00 -f priya -n priya TASKS==520
ERROR:    'setres' failed
ERROR:    cannot select 520 tasks for reservation for 7:17:06:28
ERROR:    cannot select requested tasks for 'TASKS==520'


Also, can -s default to "as soon as the resources are available" instead of
"now"?  Trying to do '-d +7:00:00:00 -f priya ALL' requires a guessing game to
find a suitable starting time.
