OK, I have now sorted that problem, I had specified a value in the USERCFG
section, but I'd put a percent sign on it :D Now set as a plain 12.5 and we
get this output:

Job                    PRIORITY*     FS( User)  Serv(QTime)
             Weights   --------     200(   25)   150(   25)

35509                    804579     0.1(454.4)  99.9(80412)
35510                    801017     0.1(454.4)  99.9(80056)

How do the figures add up, to give the over all priority, i.e. what does the
99.9 and 0.1 mean? and the other figures... IThis output isn't particularly
well documented on the maui website!
