Thanks for the pointer. We had seen Maui and were keeping in the back of 
our minds in case we needed the implement a more complex policy. We had 
been thinking that it would be better to not add complexity when we didn't 
need it, but maybe we do :)

To be clear about what is going on here: there is some bug in pbs_sched, 
that would be work around by using Maui (i.e. it's not a problem with 
pbs_server), but since Maui works an is more capable, it is not worth my 
time to figure out what the problem is.
