[Mauiusers] Gold and maui bug?

Hi.

We switched from qbank to gold a while ago.  In maui we define a notify script 
that gets called when something fails, for instance when a job exhausting the 
cpu quota.  In gold this doesn't seem to be supported any more, when a user 
has passed his quota limit the job get deferred, but the message given to 
notify from maui is non-descriptive:

FAILURE:  cannot receive response from allocation-manager server 
rockstest.cc.uit.no:7112 (cmd: '<XML>')

in qbank this message would be more informative and give us the possibility to 
automatically notify the user by mail.

From the maui log it seems like maui receives and interprets the message 
correctly, but the information is never passed to the notify script:

11/30 10:59:58 WARNING:  request failed
11/30 10:59:58 ALERT:    request failed with status code 784 (Insufficient 
balance to reserve job)
11/30 10:59:58 INFO:     failed request message '<?xml version="1.0" 
encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Envelope><Body><Response 
actor="gold"><Status><Value>Failure</Value><Code>784</Code><Message>Insufficient 
balance to reserve job</Message></Status></Response></Body></Envelope>

Any hints?
