I have searched the email list and found others who have had a similar
problem but it was due to some keys not matching between the client and
server, I beleive this is not the error I am seeing.

I have built maui-3.2.6p16 on one server with torque 2.1.6.

I have confirmed that maui seems to be functioning well since when I submit
commands via qsub I can see maui sending the job to one of the torque nodes
with qstat. Everything appears to work correctly except when I issue any
maui client commands like showq.

# showq
ERROR:    lost connection to server
ERROR:    cannot request service (status)

11/07 15:29:27 ALERT:    cannot read client packet
11/07 15:29:27 MSUDisconnect(S)

What seems to bother me is the ALERT's about not locating the timestamp and
not being able to read the client packet.
