Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately it doesn't work in our cluster. (I am 
the administrator, so if you happen to know any options that influence it, 
please share.) I think ncpus=100 makes it look for a machine with 100 
processors. I get 'rejected : CPU' lines in the output of checkjob -v.

It's amazing that these trivial matters seem not to be documented 

Best regards,
