Good day,

when trying to use soft requests for hostgroups because sequence numbers
do not work with parallel jobs I just found that "-soft" does not work
in combination with "-q" anymore, at least not in the same way as it
used to do:

>echo sleep 15 | qsub -N sleep_15 -soft -q batch
Your job 4026 ("sleep_15") has been submitted

>qstat -r
job-ID  prior   name       user         state submit/start at     queue                          slots ja-task-ID
    4026 0.00000 sleep_15   XXXXXXXX     qw    12/19/2008 11:56:33                                    1
        Full jobname:     sleep_15
        Hard Resources:
        Soft Resources:
        Hard requested queues: batch

Any ideas?

Thanks, Erik Soyez.
