[torqueusers] Torque 4.1.4: Array job dependencies

Hello everyone,

One of my users tried to use this script:

i=$(qsub sleeper1.sh)
qsub -t 0-1 -W depend=afterany:$i sleeper2.sh

This fails (silently to the user) after sleeper1.sh finished with the
log message:
1/11/2013 19:43:50;0080;PBS_Server.697;Req;req_reject;Reject reply
code=15004(Invalid request MSG=Arrays may only be given array
dependencies), aux=0, type=RegisterDependency, from @cluster

I do not see why an array job should not depend on a single job, as this
worked fine on 2.5.x
