Ah ok.  Shouldn't really matter in this case because the submitting user is 
both manager & operator...

Strange, 'qconf -msconf' shows "report_pjob_tickets TRUE" already (and nobody 
would have set that - this is a private grid I set up for testing).

In any case, I flipped the priorities around like you suggested.  The 
lesser-important jobs get submitted with '-p -1000' and the important jobs 
with default priority and it's now scheduling the way I hoped for!  Important 
jobs taking precedence over already-scheduled array tasks.

Many thanks for your help.
