[Mauiusers] confused about standing reservations

I'm trying to use standing reservations (Maui 3.2.6p21) to avoid running
jobs on certain nodes during work hours.  For example:

    SRSTARTTIME[userver171]     07:00:00
    SRENDTIME[userver171]       16:00:00
    SRPERIOD[userver171]        DAY
    SRDAYS[userver171]          MON TUE WED THU FRI
    SRHOSTLIST[userver171]      userver171
    SROWNER[userver171]         USER:kim
    SRMAXTIME[userver171]       5:00:00

I interpreted the above to mean that on weekdays jobs can only be run on
userver171 by Kim between 07:00 and 16:00.

This doesn't seem to work.  Jobs continue to be placed on that machine
during the reserved period.

Is the assignment of jobs to nodes done dynamically or at the time of job
