Regarding the need to enforce memory limits per process, I believe you 
want the pmem option.    pmem should set the memory limits for each 
process within the job.  So, if you use nodes=4:ppn=1,pmem=2000m, you 
will get 2GB per node on four nodes.  Likewise if you do 
nodes=4:ppn=2,pmem=2000m, you will get 4GB per node on four nodes.

Hope this helps.
