	Hi !

	i'am using open_pbs 3.0.0 + maui 3.3

	when users submit job requiring too much memory, torque queue the job 
but maui
	is unable to execute it.


	in checkjob i have :

		job is deferred.  Reason:  NoResources  (cannot create reservation for 
job 'xxxxx' (intital reservation attempt)
		Rejection Reasons: [Class        :   43][CPU          :   57][State 
      :   11]

===>  here  i'm surprised to see that the job is rejecter by a "CPU" 
problem. it should be "Memory" ??

	when i use qalter to fix (clear) the memory constraint, then 
"releasehold -a JOBID"  + "runjob -c JOBID"
	the job dont start and gets deferred again :(

	i see whith checkjob that maui is no awear that memory constraint are 
	the line :
		Dedicated Resources Per Task: PROCS: 1  MEM: xxxxM  SWAP: xxG
	is unchanged where i expect a change in MEM/SWAP values.

	if i restart maui, the job start.

	any idea ?

	thank you.
