yes, that is the behavior i am seeing.

the way i did the queues is i added properties to the nodes in the nodes file:

c0-59 np=4 serial
c0-60 np=4 serial
c0-61 np=4 serial
c0-62 np=4 serial
c0-63 np=4 serial
c0-64 np=4 serial
c0-65 np=4 serial 
c0-66 np=4 serial
c0-67 np=4 serial
c0-68 np=4 serial
c0-69 np=2 serial
c0-70 np=2 serial

and from pbsnodes:

     state = free
     np = 2
     properties = serial
     ntype = cluster
     status = opsys=linux,uname=Linux compute-0-70.local 2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Aug 23 13:38:27 BST 2006 x86_64,sessions=31141 31393 5457 15350 27161,nsessions=5,nusers=1,idletime=9506117,totmem=18521548kb,availmem=18280708kb,physmem=16425076kb,ncpus=2,loadave=0.00,netload=169380204972,state=free,jobs=? 0,rectime=1229443686

the script headers from the user are simply:

#!/bin/csh -f
#PBS -N dock6VS
#PBS -q sroute
#PBS -l nodes=1:ppn=1
#PBS -j oe
#PBS -l cput=1:00:00
