[GE users] Selecting "no queue" to qsub when a default is configured?

Hi,

I've made the decision to remove the default queue to allow me to test the
complex attributes and have told the users that they need to specify which
queue they need to use for the next few days during testing.

p.s. my apologies for leaving the old message at the bottom of my posting.

Neil

if the wouldn't be a bug: yes.

For now I would suggest to include all possible queues in the -q  
list. If you have at least 6.0u11, it will replace the default  
request, below this version it will unfortunately be appended only.

Please create a new email instead of hijacking a thread by editing
