the idle job scheduling window, their accumulated eligible queue time
gets reset to zero, lowering their priority and occasionally pushing
them out of the MAXIJOB window again.

  Since they have already been fixed to particular nodes, it seems that
suspended jobs should be treated differently from purely idle jobs. I
