There is a 2.5.9 release candidate available at http://www.clusterresources.com/downloads/torque/snapshots/torque-2.5.9-snap.201110281656.tar.gz

The following is from the Release_Notes file from the source:

    There were several bug fixes to TORQUE 2.5.9. Following are a list of
    noteable bug fixes.

        Added function DIS_tcp_close which frees buffer memory used for sending
        and receiving tcp data. This reduces the running memory size of TORQUE.

        Fix for a server seg-fault when using the record_job_info.

        Fix for afteranyarray and afterokarry where dependent jobs would not
        run after the dependent array requirements were satisfied.

        Fix to delete .AR array files from the $TORQUE_HOME/server_priv/arrays

        Fix to recover previous state of job arrays between restarts of pbs_server

        Fix to prevent the server from hanging when moving jobs from one server to
        another server

        Fix to stop a segfault if using munge and the munge daemon was not running

        Security fix to munge authorization to prevent users from gaining access
        to TORQUE when munge was not running.

        Fix to allow pam_pbssimpleauth to work properly.

    A new torque.cfg option as added named TRQ_IFNAME. This option allows the
    administrator to select the outbound tcp interface by interface name for qsub

    To see a compelete list of changes please see the CHANGELOG.

Please download and try this snapshot and let us know if there are additional issues that we need to fix before we release 2.5.9.
