Hi,
	Is the "-now" option being added by some default mechanism to
the qsub? 

HTH,

Ignore the latter half of my confused reply. The normal behavior of SGE
qsub is to accept a job and pend it forever in state "qw" if a resource
request can not be satisfied. I can't remember off the top of my head
what must be wrong for SGE to reject a job submission right away.
