   Opened: Wed Dec 9 12:58:00 -0700 2009 

Observed behavior:

- submit jobs with no h_rt requested but request a consumable resource
- the last job will in addition request a complex with high urgency, resource reservation and a huge amount of the consumable resource
- this last job will skip to top of waiting jobs, but smaller requests always slip in from the former jobs

Giving every job a dedicated runtime of 5 minutes gives the expected behavior: last job will reserve the consumable resource.

The problem might be in the default_duration being INFINITY and other jobs which also are seen with an estimated runtime of INIFINTY are
allowed to start backfilling.

There should be a different entry UNDEFINED (maybe also as value for -l h_rt=). Other UNDEFINED jobs shouldn't be eligible for backfilling
to avoid starvation in the default configuration.

They can of course be scheduled when there was a job submitted with an explicit -l h_rt=INFINITY.

Workaround for now: set the default_duration to 9999:00:00 instead of INFINITY
