[GE users] SGE-6.2: "sequence numbers" do not work for parallel jobs.

Good day,

we have two hostgroups (@slim and @fat) and want to keep the fat nodes
free from default jobs as long as possible.  But the usual way by using
sequence numbers does not work.  Parallel jobs always go to fat nodes
first unless they're full.  I've tried many many things but can't get
it to work the way it should, e.g.:

"qconf -ssconf":
queue_sort_method                 seqno

"qconf -sq batch":
seq_no                10,[@fat=1000]

"qstat -f" displays the correct sequence and funnily it does work with
serial jobs.  Is there a hidden feature for pe_seq_nos?

Has anyone experienced anything like that with 6.2 before?

Thanks, Erik Soyez.
