qsub -W depend=afterok:15606 /users/user1/MEME/wz16_6-30-2011.pbs

This failed normally, then the user got creative, and changed it to:

qsub -W depend=afterok:16432.user2.rice.edu

Note that our cluster head is biouman.rcsg.rice.edu and that user2.rice.edu by
some cosmic joke/coincidence, happens to be a resolvable hostname in our
campus, named after the user whose job user1 was trying to piggyback on in a
misguided attempt to make his job run sooner.

Our original example used 81223.cluster.rice.edu, which user1 had cut and
pasted, resulting in the first crash (cluster.rice.edu was meant as a <insert
cluster name here>.rice.edu, but, by the same cosmic coincidence, is a
resolvable host name on campus.

user1 and user2 uids have been changed to protect the innocent in case this
bugzilla is googled.
