Thanks for looking into it.  Can you try something more diabolical?
Don't do this against a real pbs_server:

while :;do  for a in `seq 1 10`;do pbs_iff -t hpcjr 15001 && echo $a;done; sleep 1;done

You should see it print 1 through 10 instantly, sleep 1 second, and
loop.  On 64bit clients, it takes several seconds to get through the
first 10.
