[GE users] long running jobs fill all slots

the following behaviour looks like a bug to me:

   We've set the share tree policy halflife parameter to 1 hour,
   since shares should be obeyed in time. When sending jobs
   running longer than 1 hour, we get the problem that that
   particular user gets all processing slots after a while
   regardless of the share setting (indeed, even setting his
   shares to 0 does not help!). It looks to me like after
   halflife, still running jobs are not accounted for anymore
   and the system just sends new job, resulting in more and
   more jobs occupying the system. How to get out of this
   situation without setting halflife to a long time ?

   shares are 100% CPU based. Ticket policy is OSF, 0.3 Prio,
   0.1 Urg.,0.6 Ticket, 10000 share tickets,10000 functional
   total share tree and functional 10000.
