we have a cluster with 4-way-nodes.
Running a simple Job which use a parallel environment and restrict some 
resource limits, the limits are multiplied.
For example the Job:
#$ -pe mpi 4
#$ -l h_vmem=128M
#$ -l h_stack=32M
echo ulimit -d
ulimit -d
echo ulimit -s
ulimit -s

Produce this output:
ulimit -d
ulimit -s

The limits are multiplied by 4.
How can I avoid this behavior?

We have Red Hat EL4, we have defined a pe for our shared memory programs 
( OpenMP). Here also a defined time limit (h_cpu) is multiplied. The 
limit have no affect on the process but on the threads. So mostly the 
process run 4 times too long.
