Your description is unfortunately too terse to understand what the problem is. Are you using derived resources? Did you specify something like "-l complex=1"? If the later, then things are indeed working properly, since the consumables are specified per slot (not per job) by default.  If you only want one license to be used across two slots, you'd have to specify "-l complex=0.5".
