[torqueusers] array job crashes server

after setting

 	set server display_job_server_suffix = False

(such that JobID = job_number), any attempt to submit an array job with

 	qsub -t <range> <script>

results in

 	qsub: End of File

and the server crashes immediately, without any message in its logfile.

I'm running torque-2.5.11 (with maui-3.3.1) in Debian Squeeze.

A fix would be to define another suffix with

 	set server job_suffix_alias = <something>

BTW, "job_suffix_alias" is not documented in the Admin Guide (2.5.12).
And admins should be warned that the settings of
and	job_suffix_alias
should only be changed while the system is empty. The syntax change in JobID 
hurts running (and queued?) jobs.
