Hi,

after setting

        set server display_job_server_suffix = False

(such that JobID = job_number), any attempt to submit an array job with

        qsub -t <range> <script>

results in

        qsub: End of File

and the server crashes immediately, without any message in its logfile.

I'm running torque-2.5.11 (with maui-3.3.1) in Debian Squeeze.

A fix would be to define another suffix with

        set server job_suffix_alias = <something>

BTW, "job_suffix_alias" is not documented in the Admin Guide (2.5.12).
And admins should be warned that the settings of
        display_job_server_suffix
and     job_suffix_alias
should only be changed while the system is empty. The syntax change in JobID
hurts running (and queued?) jobs.

Regards,
Burkhard Bunk.
