[Mauiusers] Floating resources not working properly

I'm having a strange problem with global floating consumable resources in Maui.  I am trying to share a group of tape drives with a number of nodes.

I've added the following line to maui.cfg

NODECFG[GLOBAL]  GRES=atl4:5,atl5:5

When I do a "checknode GLOBAL", I get:

checking node GLOBAL

State:      Idle  (in current state for 00:00:04)
Configured Resources: atl4: 5
Utilized   Resources: [NONE]
Dedicated  Resources: [NONE]
Opsys:        [NONE]  Arch:      [NONE]
Speed:      0.00  Load:       0.000
Features:   [NONE]
Classes:    [NONE]

NOTE:  no reservations on node

In other words, the second resource (atl5) doesn't show up at all!

I am running maui version 3.2.6p21, on RHEL4u5 2.6.9-55.ELsmp.

As an additional issue, when I only specify 1 GRES, ie:


I cannot reserve that resource using qsub -l gres=atl4.  The only way that seems to work is qsub -l software=atl4.

I am using Torque 2.3.6
