What versions of Torque and Maui are you using?  Requesting by
hostname works for us for various versions of Torque and Maui (torque
2.x and 3.0.x + torque sched and maui 3.x), but we use the syntax:

  qsub -I -l nodes=compute-3-3 ...

where "compute-3-3" would be a node hostname.  That is, we don't
specify a count before the hostname.
