I have been desperately trying every config change I see in the archives
of this mailing list. Someone suggested setting the resource_list.ncpus
to a high value for a similar problem, so I tried it.

20 is the total cpu count I have (5 nodes / 4 cpus/node). I want torque
to find me 8 available cpus (and I don't care on which nodes).

Maybe I need to set the resource_list.ncpus to 1? I'm not yet familiar
with what these parameters really mean.
