[Mauiusers] mark node down/Idle in maui simulation

I am trying to simulate node reboot events in maui's simulation mode.
When node reboot event come, I use "mjobctl -R" to requeue the 
jobs on the node, and then use "mnodectl modify state=Down" to 
mark the node "Down". And after a few minutes, I use "mnodectl 
modify state=Idle" to mark the node "Idle" as the node is available
But this method does not work. 

The following error is encountered:

checking node node8

State:      Idle  (in current state for 00:05:40)
Expected State:  Running   SyncDeadline: Sat Oct 24 20:26:40

ALERT:  jobs active on node but state is Idle
ALERT:  node is in state Idle but load is high (2.000)

It seems the node which has been marked Down will get a wrong 
state after it is marked Idle. 

Can anyone tells me how to solve this problem?
Thanks very much.
