Is there a way to remove a depend from a job after it has been  

A user was using it to control the number of jobs he had running at a  
time, and was using

qsub -W afterany:JOBID

If you do

qalter -W after:JOBID  NEWJOBID

You end up with a job that has BOTH afterany and after.

Using qrls doesn't force the hold to go away.

Is there any way to wack the depend?  Or replace it with a different  
one and not append?
