This should resolve your problem. However, if you change this feature, it is recommended that you don't have any jobs queued or running, because this parameter changes the naming scheme for jobs, and it is extremely difficult to find jobs that are named differently than your naming scheme. There are sites that use this feature, perhaps one will chime in, but I just want to make sure you're aware of that warning. I'm wary of people using this feature to cripple their systems.
