[GE users] soft requests on load values

Are soft requests supposed to work with load values?

When I submit a job with a requirement like '-soft -l mem_total=12G', I 
would expect it to be scheduled on a machine with 12GB or more if there 
is a free slot available on such a machine. But the jobs I submit always 
ends up on machines with less memory, so it looks like the soft 
requirement has no effect.

When I submit with hard requirement it works as expected.

Any ideas on what could be wrong in our configuration?
