According to include/pbs_ifl.h in the Torque source:

#define PBS_MAXSEQNUM           8       /* max sequence number length */

So, 99999999?  If so, you've got some breathing room.  :)

Yes, interesting problem. We are at 1.4M jobs and counting...
Fortunately that cluster is going out of service in a few month

Anyone who knows?
