[torqueusers] Generic resources not working in 2.3.6 ?

Previously we were running 2.1.x on our cluster and our moms were configured
with the following generic resource:

Image_version !/usr/bin/cat /VERSION

The file /VERSION contains the version string for our node image. We were
able to extract this information from the generic resources in our
monitoring script and see which nodes run which version of the image. After
upgrading to 2.3.6 this week this no long works.

I¹ve also tried setting $configversion as a possible alternative, but it
seems that value is not reported by pbsnodes either.

I know our previous usage was a slight abuse of the intent of generic
resources, but it worked as far as getting information from a node
dynamically goes. Any ideas what could be wrong, or suggestions on an
alternate implementation?
