Sorry for asking, but have you excluded the "typo in nodes file" kind of
What does pbsnodes say about that node and another one? What happens if
you send that first one offline, will then get another node the 3 jobs?
What happens if you run that first machine under another name as a
client than it runs as a server, i.e. let your current node name is
"torqueserver" and you have a second name for the machine (say node00)
which is used for being a friendly client?

No other ideas for the moment.
