[Mauiusers] Priority - Order of the Maui Scheduler

I have a question on the order priority of the Maui scheduler. We have
users who submit jobs with dependencies on a previous run using the
option "-W depend=afterany:job#". Let's say the original job is #2022
and the next job #2023 uses the -W option. In the mean time four or
five other jobs are queued. My users have noticed that if job #2022
completes, the other queued jobs run first before starting job #2023.
Even though job #2023 has a lower job id, it looks like Maui runs in the
order of the time it was queued. Therefore job #2023 gets queued
after job #2027, so it waits until job #2027 completes before it runs.
Is this the way Maui is supposed to work? I using Torque 2.1.6 and Maui
3.2.6p19. Any comments?
