A user submitted a job to our "smp" parallel environment which limits tasks to a single host. It ended up getting split over two queues on the same host:

27595 0.61000 crater11 lund S 10/08/2012 11:18:34 mpi@font3linb.cora.nwra.com SLAVE
mpi@font3linb.cora.nwra.com SLAVE
mpi@font3linb.cora.nwra.com SLAVE
mpi@font3linb.cora.nwra.com SLAVE
27595 0.61000 crater11 lund S 10/08/2012 11:18:34 compute.q@font3linb.cora.nwra. MASTER
compute.q@font3linb.cora.nwra. SLAVE
compute.q@font3linb.cora.nwra. SLAVE
compute.q@font3linb.cora.nwra. SLAVE

Hover, the compute.q is a subordinate queue of the mpi queue, so the job was immediately suspended.
