[GE users] Prefer submitting to priority queue over subordinate queue

We have a collection of machines in our grid, some of which were 
purchased by specific researchers and I want to give them priority on 
those machines.  So, I have created "owner" queues for the various 
machines, limited access to them, and made the general "compute" queue 
subordinate to the owner queue.  The problem I see now is when a member 
of the owner queue submits jobs, they first go into the compute queue, 
then the owner queue is filled and the compute queue jobs are suspended. 
  It's not the end of the world because they will eventually run, but it 
does create a funny situation.  It seems like the scheduler should be 
able to compare the two queues on the same host and submit to the 
non-subordinated one first.

We're running 6.2u2_1.
