[torqueusers] Problem with nodes allocation

Thanks to some excellent (off-list) diagnosis from Glen Beane, the problem
of "only one node" allocation has been identified as being provoked by
these statements in my server and queue setup:
qmgr -c 'set server resources_available.nodect = 999999'
qmgr -c 'set queue batch resources_available.nodect = 999999'
This configuration (which comes from many torque.setup sample scripts to
be found on the net) is seemingly wrong and/or a problem with newer
versions of Torque. If you omit (or unset) the resource, then node
allocation behaves as it should.
According to Glen, "this setting was actually removed from the torque
setup script distributed after torque 2.2.0".
