[GE users] Functional sharing

We've been running our cluster with functional sharing turned on to  
implement fair sharing between two main applications and ordinary user  
jobs,and it has been working pretty well.

However, a project has submitted a large number (2000 or so) jobs into  
the queue, and what this appears to have done is to have diluted the  
project's share of the tickets to a large enough extent that it is  
being starved from executing at all.

How do we work around this problem? The large submission is entirely  
correct and expected, and the desired outcome is that the project's  
fraction of the cluster will work its way through the jobs.
