You've got 2 things going on here.  The first is that the weird starttime is
because users aren't requesting a walltime and/or your torque config doesn't
have a default or max walltime, this causes Maui to assume a maximum possible
walltime.  Each job will then appear to reserve resources for 100 days or until
they exit (whihever comes first).

The second thing is that jobs aren't starting the way you expect.  See if
'checkjob' gives a reason.
