A limit per slot is not implemented. You can multiply beforehand, e.g.

imit users {*} hosts {@certain_hosts} to virtual_free=800M

and submit with "-pe mpich 2 -l virtual_free=400M" - you should be  
able to get two slots on the machine. I.e. the request is 800M in  
total when run on one  machine.
