When the admin defined $SGE_ROOT/default/common/sge_qstat with "-u *", it can't be limited again by a personal ~/.sge_qstat "-u reuti". It
can be limited on the command line by such an option though.

Maybe it's a side effect as more than one "-u ..." option on the command line it also only honors the "-u *" one. I.e.:

qstat -u reuti -u "*"
qstat -u "*" -u reuti

yields the same output of a `qstat` of all users.

  • Severity set to minor

Like similar options, the union of multiple -u arguments is taken,
i.e. -u A -u B is equivalent to -u A,B and with * present, you get
everything. I'm not sure it's worth the incompatibility and effort to
change that in this case and any others where it might make sense.

parse_multi_stringlist is the place it could be done.
