[gridengine users] h_vmem negative values?

Running Rocks 6, so whatever GE version is included there.

h_vmem is set consumable and per job, 4G default:

-bash-4.1$ qconf -sc |grep h_vmem
h_vmem              h_vmem     MEMORY      <=    YES         JOB 
4G       0

each exec host has an h_vmem attribute set:
-bash-4.1$ qconf -se scg3-0-11 |grep h_vmem
complex_values        slots=16,h_vmem=60G

pe "shm" is defined;
-bash-4.1$ qconf -sp shm
pe_name            shm
slots              999
user_lists         NONE
xuser_lists        NONE
start_proc_args    NONE
stop_proc_args     NONE
allocation_rule    $pe_slots
control_slaves     FALSE
job_is_first_task  TRUE
urgency_slots      min
accounting_summary FALSE

A user is submitting a job with '-pe shm -l h_vmem=120G', and it's 
getting dispatched to a host that has h_vmem=60G defined.  How is that 

And qstat reports negative h_vmem values, e.g.:
-bash-4.1$ qstat -f -u '*' -F h_vmem

Maybe the sgeexecd needs to be cycled for the setting to take effect?  I 
can try that next.
