I've never seen this happen before, but looking at the code tells pretty
clearly what is happening.  A routing queue has a resources_assigned property;
which is illegal.

Unless someone has a better idea, you will need to delete the queue definition
for the corrupt queue.  cd into $PBS_SERVER_HOME/server_priv/queues/.  These
are binary files, but you can grep them for the strings "Route" and

'grep -l resources_assigned * | xargs grep -l Route' shouldn't print anything.
If it does, move that file to another directory.  Once pbs_server starts, you
can run 'strings' on that bad queue file and recreate it.  Save that file, gzip
it, and send it to me or the list.  I'd like to see it.

Or if you have a backup copy of your server config, then create a new serverdb
and recreate your config.  Don't forget to set your next job number after
recreating the serverdb.
