Actually this adresses only the problem of dispatching a sequential
jobs before a parallel job within the same scheduling cycle. But it
must make a difference on the job dispatch priority. Just should use
qstat -pri to see whether the difference is large enough to overrule
your ticket policy with the concrete case. Btw. how can you say it
occurs within the same cycle? Are you using

 # qconf -ssconf | grep "^params"
 params                            monitor=1

and tail -f $SGE_ROOT/default/common/schedule?

Hm ... to be honest I can't explain it right now. Actually
subordination occurs immediately even within a single scheduling
cycle so your double subordination should work.

Are these parallel jobs distribted over multiple hosts?
