I had this same problem when running PBSPro 5.4.x and Moab.  Although I
can't say when the Maui developers will port the fix for this problem
that's in Moab, you should be able to use the NODECFG parameter as a
temporary work-around.

NODECFG[nodename] FEATURES=one,two,three

I used this work-around semi-successfully while Moab was still broken.  In
order for this to work, you will need to remove all features on the node
definitions in PBS.  If Maui sees any features at all in PBS's node
configuration, it will use those and then only use the first one.
