Resource quotas are targeting consumable and fixed complexes for now.  
Making h_rt consumable is not really an option, but it would be  
possible to define two queues on @pvmhosts with different user_lists  
set. The time you set there (in the queue definition) for h_rt in one  
of them will also be enforced. Maybe you have to limit the total slot  
count also in the exechost definition, as you habe now (at least) two  
queues per machine.

But anyway: crashing the scheduler is of course a bug, instead there  
should be an error message. I suggest to file an issue for it.
