I once had the same kind of problem - a job stuck in the front of the 
queue preventing other jobs from executing even though checkjob reported 
"can run" for them. In my case, it was due to an inconsistency between 
Maui's and TORQUE's view of the available resources - Maui was trying to 
assign a job to an already occupied resource - because it thought jobs 
running there each use 0 processors, TORQUE was rejecting these attempts.

Maybe the output of diagnose -n <name of the offline node>, diagnose -j 
<job id>, diagnose -r will provide additional clues?

Another thing that you might try is setting the node 'down' (kill pbs_mom 
on it) rather than 'offline' to see if it changes anything.

Best regards,
