At least torque/PBS is _VERY_ picky about name lookups.  Make sure that
your /etc/hosts and/or DNS is set up correctly.  I find it easier to use
/etc/hosts with the format: shortname shortname.domainname

and use shortname everywhere.

Also, putting jotunn.rhi.hi.is in $TORQUE_HOME/server_name might help if
its not already there.
