[torqueusers] Slot limit unmatched

I am running torque 4.2.5
I have a user who submitted an array job of ~2500 jobs
I have 'set server max_slot_limit = 512'

There are only 8 of his jobs running, the others are blocked because they sat so long.
Yet if I try to qrun one of them, I get:
	qrun: Invalid request MSG=Cannot run job. Array slot limit is 512 and there are already 512 jobs running

Why does torque think there are 512 slots currently in use when there are only 8?
