Maui got hung up pretty consistently.  I was able to reproduce it every time with my test case of dumping a large amount of jobs onto torque all at once.

I patched my copy of the code locally and ran it with some debugging printouts that, in conjunction with the maui logs, let me verify that it actually worked (apart from the stand-alone test program I wrote to test my initial hypothesis).  I have been hammering our local torque install with jobs ever since, without any issues.

I just went and cleaned up the code to remove the debugging info and comments, re-built, and re-tested -- all checks out.  I will post the bug to bugzilla along with my patch.  Hopefully it can get field tested a bit more...
