I have just seen this behaviour with 6.2u2_1 when requesting a $fill_up
PE and having a -masterq specification. Disabling the resource limit
caused the job to be scheduled on the next scheduler run.

It did not happen in tests with 6.2u5 and u6. So it seems, it is a bug
fixed somewhere inbetween. I do not have 6.2u4 to compare.

My qstat output was different though. With -pe orte 8 it would say:

cannot run in PE "orte" because it only offers 7 slots

so always exactly one less than requested.
