[torqueusers] host not authorized

I am very sorry to have introduced this problem.  It had to do with an 
attempt at dealing with a pbs_server with multiple Ethernet interfaces 
where they wanted the high level server traffic to go over one interface 
and the mom traffic to go over the other.  In attempting to solve this 
(done back when 2.3 was the developement branch) the code to insert the 
pbs_server into the okclients list was removed.  I have replaced this 
code yesterday and fixed the problem in 2.3 and 2.4(trunk).


Again, I am very sorry to have caused this problem and am thankful for 
the many good eyes who have correctly pointed out the place in the code 
where the error was observed.  Thanks.
