Associating queue with specific nodes is definitely not
working as documented.

queue s3opt24 has nodes23-46 allocated to it.  If a job is
submitted to the queue requesting 5 nodes, these
are the nodes allocated to the job:

exec_host = node24/1+node24/0+node23/1+node23/0+node21/1+node21/0+node20/1
         +node20/0+node19/1+node19/0

This is the output of the job:

Warning: no access to tty (Bad file descriptor).
Thus no job control in this shell.
The master node of this job is  node24.cl.xxxcorp.com
The working directory is 
/home/research/swsides/z3d100x100_ab_da000_db000_filter
_2
This job runs on the following nodes:
The nodefile is /var/spool/torque/aux//2272.storage2.cl.xxxcorp.com
node24 node24 node23 node23 node21 node21 node20 node20 node19 node19
This job has allocated 10 nodes
