That message comes from src/server/svr_chk_owner.c in the
authenticate_user() function:

  if (strncmp(preq->rq_user, pcred->username, PBS_MAXUSER))
    *autherr = strdup("Users do not match");
    sprintf(error_msg, "%s: Requested user %s: credential user %s:
requested from host %s",
                   *autherr, preq->rq_user, pcred->username, preq->rq_host);
    log_event(PBSEVENT_ADMIN, PBS_EVENTCLASS_SERVER, __func__, error_msg);

Check your PBS server log for that string and see what the differences
between the two userids are.  That should help narrow down the
problem.  If it's not there, you may need to bump your loglevel.
