No there is currently no official patch.
I have one that we are rolling out on our cluster right now but Garrick
haven't finished looking at it yet.

The bug exists in ALL versions of PBS-Pro/OpenPBS/SPBS/Torque.
(We have seen confirmation that PBS-Pro also have this)

I have patches for 1.0.1p6, 2.0.0p4, 2.0.0p6 and 2.1.2
