           Summary: 2.5(.9) qsub does not seem to accept comma seperated
                    -W argument
           Product: TORQUE
           Version: 2.5.x
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: clients
        AssignedTo: knielson at adaptivecomputing.com
        ReportedBy: ramon.bastiaans at sara.nl

When submitting a job that contains:

#PBS -W stagein=file1 at host:/some/path/file1,stagein=file2 at host:/some/path/file2


#PBS -W stagein=file1 at host:/some/path/file1,file2 at host:/some/path/file2


'stagein=file1 at host:/some/path/file1','stagein=file2 at host:/some/path/file2'

etc etc;

We get the error:
* qsub: illegal -W value

However, submitting like this:

#PBS -W stagein=file1 at host:/some/path/file1
#PBS -W stagein=file2 at host:/some/path/file2

It works fine.

I believe 2.4 suffered from a similar bug, which was fixed in 2.4.9 (from

b - restore ability to parse -W x=geometry:{...,...} 

Is it possible that this bug was not fixed in 2.5 ? Or maybe this is an
completely different bug.
