The message means that that some buffer in Maui got full, and you need
to increase the buffer size.  Look in the Maui log for lines like
"ALERT: buffer overflow in SomeFunctionName" to find in which function
the error occured (it is probably in the file src/server/UserI.c) and
see what buffer that function uses.  We got this once, and I believe in
our case it was the MAX_SBUFFER (defined in include/msched-common.h)
that had to be increased.
