[torqueusers] Time-shared nodes not recognised

I am trying to set up a small cluster of single processor machines. I want to have all configures as timeshared, so as to run long jobs, but also to occasionally push through jobs fast across the whole cluster.

I have Torque/Maui set up. Everything works fine if nodes are configured as 'cluster'
However when I add the :ts to nodes in nodes config file it goes bad.

pbsnodes -a reports everything correctly, all nodes as 'time-shared' and in 'free' state.

However jobs in the queue do not start with error:

job is deferred.  Reason:  RMFailure  (cannot start job - RM failure, rc: 15062, msg: 'Unknown node ')
Holds:    Defer  (hold reason:  RMFailure)

The only difference is the addition of the ':ts' subscript.

Any ideas?
