[Mauiusers] more jobs than number of cores

I just able to work on a way-around by making a wrapper for qsub in 
which I put a condition that if no one is asking for any  node/ppn 
specifically then it adds an option of nodes=1:ppn=1 on the command 
line. This has resolved the problem of jobs exceeding the number of cores.
I am still looking for a way to do it on the configuration file.
Can anyone has any suggestions?
