pbs_server is failing to create its TCP connection to MOM to send the
job.  The likely failure is a failure to bind to a priviledged port.

Which linux distro are you using?  On RHEL3 x86_64 I've observed very
slow binds when many are done quickly.  It was easy to reproduce with
something like this:
  seq 1 1000 | xargs -n 1 -i /usr/sbin/pbs_iff -t $pbsservername 15001

Try it on a 32bit and 64bit host.  It should finish in about 5 seconds.
Does it fail on 64bit?
