I just checked with strace whats going on and and I only see some strange 
socketcall() calls. But somehow this is probably the reason why torque is not 
assigning the resources to the started job.

Garrick, can you just give me a hint where to search in the sources? I mean 
your dumpmon shows that pbs_mom in principle properly gets the resources used 
by the jobs started on the node. Only the later on the resources are not 
properly assigned to the job, but which program does this assignment, pbs_mon 
or pbs_server? 
I hope I find some time during the weekend to look into the torque sources, 
but of course it will be much easier if I would know those basics in advance.
