[torqueusers] checkpoints and walltime

I am seeing something odd.
If someone request enough walltime to land in my short queue rather than my tiny queue (default), /etc/profile is not sourced.
The setting that seems to make a difference is checkpoint_defaults.
If that is enabled, various env variables are not set (HOSTNAME in particular)
If it is disabled, everything seems to be set as expected.

Is there something about checkpointing that affects environment settings that I am missing?
