that doesn't seem correct.  I use procs all the time and I do not get
this behavior from Moab (I've tried it with 5.3 and 5.4).  The
behavior I expect and see is for Moab to give me X total processors
spread across any number of nodes (the processors could all be on the
same node, or they could be spread across many nodes depending on what
is free at the time the job is scheduled to run).
