Two questions:

1) Is this with 2.3 ?

2) Can you check your syslog and mom logs for things like:

pbs_mom: No such file or directory (2) in open_std_file, cannot open/create stdout/stderr file '/usr/spool/PBS/spool/253428.tango-m.vpac.org.OU'

as we're seeing this occasionally on some nodes, and some
extra debugging I added implied that O_CREAT was disappearing.

Have just recompiled my mom's with extra code to print out
where that might happen to see if it's deliberately getting
dropped or not, but it may take a little time to work out
what's going on..
