Yes, that was simply wrong, sorry. I just looked at default_duration and
mixed things up.
So, to summarize:
* Use default_duration != INFINITY and > max. job run time (i.e. longest
queue time limit).
* If qsub -l h_rt=... (or s_rt) then that is used, else default_duration
(the queue config's h_rt/s_rt is not used).
I think I got it now. Thanks!
