[torqueusers] Unexpected 'qsub: Access from host not allowed, or unknown host' error

I'm not certain that this problem is caused by some sort of numeric or 
size limit, but here's what I'm experiencing (with Torque 2.3.1 on 
CentOS 5.1):

For "no good reason", a qsub is failing with this error:

qsub: Access from host not allowed, or unknown host

This job would have been the 2,348th job in a pipeline of dependent 
jobs, all placed in a held state initially, with the very first job in a 
manual hold state.

The "#PBS -W" line in the qsub script is 13,984 bytes long (thanks to a 
hefty 'depend' clause).

This pipeline works fine with a few hundred files but breaks with a few 
thousand.  My submission code is in Perl, and as far as I know, it's not 
subject to any size limits that would cause peculiar malfunction.
