[GE issues] node fill-up issue

I want the default behavior of sge scheduler to use the least used nodes first and then fill up the available slots on a node. 

queue_sort_method is set to load and np_load_avg=0.50 (normal usage)

But nodes are being filled up instead of jobs being scheduled on the least used nodes. It happens only when jobs are submitted in batches. If jobs are submitted at various intervals, they are being dispatched to different nodes. I.e. submit a job, wait until it is running, submit the next job, and so on.

We haven't seen this issue in SGE6.0u9. Is this a bug in 6.2u1
