Hello, the following standing reservation was intended to provide quick 
turnround for short jobs during the working week.
It successfully reserves three 2-proc nodes, according to showres -n.

But it has allowed 2 jobs with 7-day walltime to start on Friday at 19:00 
on one of those reserved nodes, so that's unavailable for all this week. 
I had expected maui to know that it could 'backfill' till Monday 9am 
but not beyond. Is there anything wrong or missing with the config?

Also, on restarting maui, even with a new SR name for this reservation, 
maui re-allocated the reservation to the same 3 nodes, including the one
with the 2 7-day jobs running!

SRCFG[quickx]  PERIOD=DAY DAYS=Mon,Tue,Wed,Thu,Fri
SRCFG[quickx]  STARTTIME=09:00:00 ENDTIME=19:00:00
SRCFG[quickx]  CLASSLIST=tiny,midi
SRCFG[quickx]  RESOURCES=PROCS:2
SRCFG[quickx]  TASKCOUNT=3

(maui version is maui-3.2.6p14, torque is torque-2.0.0p5).

Thanks for any comments, Lawrence Lowe.
