Using qmon, 
    job control tab, 
        pending jobs tab, 
            click on a specific jobid,
                click on WHY? Button 

I usually get a browser window with a long list/explanation of the various
que instances and why this job was not assigned to run on each one of them.
And sometimes a general explanation at the bottom why it is still waiting.

But sometimes the browser box is just empty. Lately it's empty even though
everything else about 6.0u3 seems to be working just fine (some jobs
waiting, some jobs running, jobs completing ok and waiting jobs then

Is this behavior switchable (detailed Why? or empty Why?), or is there some
everyday circumstance in which the Why? browser is sometimes empty, and at
other times it's explanatory again.
