this is the behaviour I'm seeing, but not the desired :-) I don't
really want that reservation (giving the job some extra freedom in
resource usage).
I really appreciate the explanation you give me this mail. I've
completely understood how torque/MAUI behaves when adding -l option to
qsub. In Torque/MAUI is not possible to kill a job that has used
more than X resources whitout MAUI reservation...

Many thanks for your reply!
