  15004 failures indicate 'invalid values' being passed into some
request.  They can occur with job holds, job dependencies, job
submissions from invalid clients, attempt to start jobs in a routing
queue, etc.

  The latest torque 1.1.0p4 snapshot has logging enhancements which
record the core reason for most of these failures.  Also, regarding
failure code lookup, this can be found at
http://clusterresources.com/torquedocs/2.1debugging.shtml or in

  If you could send us your pbs_server and/or pbs_mom logs, we can
assist you further.  This would be most useful if the daemons were
started with PBSLOGLEVEL set to 3 or highter.  Please include annotation
describing what activity was occuring when the failure took place.
