the situation is now slightly different, there are some jobs displayed
as being idle, but there are jobs for a certain user that are only
running or blocked (so none are idle for that user).

showq -b doesn't show anything.


showq |tail -1
Total Jobs: 106   Active Jobs: 68   Idle Jobs: 4   Blocked Jobs: 34

showq -b
           JobName      User               Reason


and that's all it reports
