The empirical evidence is that pointer to writable memory is required by
pbs_alterjob() as without my patch pbs_sched would run for a few minutes before
dying with a SEGV in sprintf(). (This is with around 2500 jobs in the queue by
the way.) With this patch it's rock solid.

Simon, agreed, strdup() is probably the way to go.
