[Mauiusers] three queues work, one queue just disappears jobs

Dear Torque/Maui Users,

too weird.

I am very puzzled. I have three queues that work, a "fast", 'quad" and 
"fluent" queue.  The medium queue does not. Jobs submitted to it, just 
Any suggestions on my queue definitions or how to discover why the jobs do 
not actually run?

These jobs never write any output, they just disappear. they create a 
*.o1875 file and an *.e1875 file, both with zero bytes written.
I can run tracejob on them and this is what I get:

 tracejob 1875
/var/spool/torque/mom_logs/20080910: No matching job records located
/var/spool/torque/sched_logs/20080910: No such file or directory

Job: 1875.ralphie
