Well, I posted this over two months ago and nobody ever replied. The  
problem is still bugging us and I have yet to find a solution. Does  
nobody else use generic resources?

The image_version property used to show up in pbsnodes output for a  
node, but since the upgrade it seems no matter what I do I cannot get  
it to show again.

Any help would be much appreciated.
