[Mauiusers] Qualified Jobs Not Scheduled during Standing Reservation

I have the following standing reservation:
SRCFG[brentp] DEPTH=5 TASKCOUNT=1 RESOURCES=PROCS:4,MEM:24576 PERIOD=DAY DAYS=MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI STARTTIME=7:00:00 ENDTIME=17:00:00 USERLIST=brentp TPN=1

I submitted the following job to PBS/Torque from a Linux account "brentp":
echo "ls -l" | qsub -l nodes=1:ppn=4,mem=23gb,walltime=3600
on "Thu Apr  7 15:56:18"

The node with the standing reservation is the only node sufficient to meet the request.
Showconfig displays the following output:
[nkummer at genetics-compute maui]$ showconfig | grep ^SR
SRTASKCOUNT[0]                    1
SRTPN[0]                          1

The standing reservation is created, because showres -n displays the following output:
[nkummer at genetics-compute maui]$ showres -n

15 nodes reserved
[nkummer at genetics-compute maui]$


But, this task does not get scheduled to run in the standing reservation.  It gets put to the bottom of the queue.
Shouldn't my job run in the standing reservation window?
Thanks.
Nathan
