Hi Garrick,

I found that upgrading to the latest snapshot after
reading your mail on the maui list solved the problem.

Should I still add the CLASSCFG statement for each queue?

I still have problems specifying multiple attributes after 

set server resources_default.neednodes = "sl3,bigmem"

and found that I could never construct a job that found these nodes.
though I may have the wrong syntax

qsub -l nodes=sl3,bigmem script.sh

For now I can cope with just setting .neednodes to a single value.

Thanks for fixing my farm for me. :)
