Hi Maui users,

Even after having specified "JOBNODEMATCHPOLICY EXACTNODE" in maui.cfg 
(and restarted the maui daemon), Maui does not follow the user 
requirements. For instance, I submitted a job with the option '-l 
nodes=4:ppn=1'. It should run on 4 distinct nodes, but ends on a single 
node. See the corresponding part of maui.log:

10/16 11:43:35 INFO:     processing node request line '4:ppn=1'
10/16 11:43:35 MJobSetCreds(17569,bla,bla,)
10/16 11:43:35 INFO:     tasks located for job 17569:  4 of 4 required

(snip)

10/16 11:43:35 MJobStart(17569)
10/16 11:43:35 MJobDistributeTasks(17569,machine,NodeList,TaskMap)
10/16 11:43:35 MAMAllocJReserve(17569,RIndex,ErrMsg)
10/16 11:43:35 MRMJobStart(17569,Msg,SC)
10/16 11:43:35 MPBSJobStart(17569,machine,Msg,SC)
10/16 11:43:35 MPBSJobModify(17569,Resource_List,Resource,lame2:ppn=4)
10/16 11:43:35 MPBSJobModify(17569,Resource_List,Resource,4:ppn=1)

What can I do now?
