     Hm, other Web pages I found seem to indicate this has to do with
what happens when nodes are specified.  I'm not specifying nodes, just
letting it pick them.  Node_pack is definitely false.  And
JOBNODEMATCHPOLICY is definitly EXACTNODE, maui was restarted.  It's
still ignoring node_pack.  

     Is there a way to force Node_pack=false behavior in maui?  In
other words if a multiprocessor node is assigned a job, the next job
should go to a processor on the next node not a processor on the node
with a job already running.  I believe that's what Node_pack=false
does.  Or am I wrong?  It seems to be doing this behavior on my
current cluster.
