Dear GNU queue developers,

First, great application!!!

I've looked through the SourceForge bugs list to
see if anyone else has had this problem and couldn't
find it. When I fill a queue directory (ie. maxexec
is reached on all hosts) the next job submission
hangs indefinitely. Also, if I submit a job directly to a
particular host and maxexec has been reached on that
host the job submission hangs. When the queue becomes
available (ie. jobs drop below maxexec) the submitted
(hanging) job does not start. Do you have any ideas?

System:
queue version = 1.30.1
Debian Linux kernel 2.4.18-686-smp

Many thanks,
