So it sounds like the $pe_slots=serial behavior isn't true for your
grid engine.  An alternative would be to convert single node jobs to
serial jobs that requests a consumable(other than slots)  representing
the number of cores on the node.  However this will change the behavior
when requesting other consumables and probably won't interact well with
core binding.
