You mean a command like:

qsub -N "myjob para1 para2" myscript.sh

With classic spooling it still seems working, maybe it's related to Berkeley DB 

But anyway, isn't it possible to submit the job in the form:

qsub -N "myjob" myscript.sh para1 para2

Another solution maybe to use a "_" and translate it back during the script:

qsub -N "myjob_para1_para2" myscript.sh

and in the script:

myname=`echo $JOB_NAME | tr "_" " "`
echo $myname
