[torqueusers] PBS job issue

	I'm wondering if this is an MPI type of job? Did you make sure to  
compile MPI to be TM-aware? How do you know the job is not actually  
running somewhere? I've found that if you don't make MPI aware of  
torque then the jobs end up on nodes MPI assigns and doesn't run on  
the nodes torque assigns. I ended up using OSC's version of mpiexec  
but using a version of MPI that can be compiled to be TM aware would  
do the same thing. This is just a guess without knowing what kind of  
job your running, what version of torque you have, how you have things  
configured and such. Hope this helps,
