I've seen other people with this problem in the past (incorrect
contents in PBS_NODEFILE), and two things were always consistent:
they are using Maui, and have resources_available.nodect set. I don't
use Maui though, and I'm not really sure if this is a coincidence, or
somewhere along the line a bug was introduced in TORQUE or Maui that
shows up with resources_available.nodect set.   Can you try a test
without resources_available.nodect set?
