Hmm, we've never successfully used it here!

Looking at your previous email that's likely to be because we have the 
same setting that Jan has with nodes=1 as a default in our qmgr 
configuration (which dates back before my time here!).

Interesting - if we can change that from a default of nodes=1 to 
ncpus=1 things might work - unfortunately I don't have our small test 
cluster up at the moment to experiment with!
