Question: Will this patch work correctly with Torque 2.3.x?  Has anyone 
tried and tested this?

The code in src/server/process_request.c seems identical at the lines in 
the above patch in the 2.3.7 and 2.5.12 versions, so there may be hope :-)

We're forced to use the old Torque 2.3.7 because we use the Maui 
scheduler (not Moab), see this thread about Torque/Maui problems:
