Looks like a bunch of moderated messages were just let loose on the list… we've since figured out the problem, that our resources_default.cput was set to 10,000 hours and our users weren't specifying a cpu time constraint in their submission scripts.

This despite that the queue we are seeing the problem on is configured with "resources_max.cput = 24000:00:00".
