In the policy configuration dialog box of qmon I want to change the
Maximum Functional Jobs and Maximum Pending Task per Job values as
administrator. Currentlu they are both zero. I want to increase these
but the only values the spinboxes allow me are 0 and -2. I also get the

Warning: max_pending_tasks_per_job: 
Requested maximum is less than current spinbox value!
Warning: max_functional_jobs: 
Requested maximum is less than current spinbox value!

from the console. The output I get from the qconf -ssconf command is
The values for max_functional_jobs_to_schedule and
are 4294967294 which I suspect correspond to -2.
Has anyone an idea why I cannot change these parameters to sensible

Thanks for your help
