[GE users] subordinate queue and preemption

I have a "test-pre" queue which has a subornidate queue of "test". They were set to use only node015 which have 8 cores (slots). 

I submitted an 8-cpu job (job1) to queue test, then another 8-cpu job (job2) to queue test-pre. Job2 won't suspend job1. The message is:

(-l slots=1) cannot run in queue "node015" because it offers only hc:slots=0.000000
                            cannot run in PE "openmpi" because it only offers 0 slots

If I change job1 to use only 7 cpus, job2 will suspend job1 and start running. 

It seems that "preemption" itself need an open slot to start. 

Any idea how to fix it?
