[torqueusers] [Fwd: Jobs are submitted but don't run]

Here's a correction to my initial email.

The job are being dispatched, but they start no processes and they 
accumulate no run time.  Although they do seem to eventually exit, they 
don't write the output nor the error files. I've read in the 
troubleshooting section of the docs that if this ever happens it's a bug 
that can be solved by running qsig 0 jobid. But what if it happens 
*every time*?

Has anyone ever had this problem before?

Thank you,

[usera at hosta ~]$ echo 'sleep 10' | /usr/local/bin/qsub -l nodes=1

So the job is submitted. But it's not being dispatched...

[usera at hosta ~]$ /usr/local/bin/qstat -a
Req'd   Elap

R   --

Although I've scoured the docs, I haven't found any reasons for this. 
Can anyone provide a clue?

Thank you,
