[gridengine users] Reported memory usage too high

IIRC this bug had to do with setting your "consumable" value to "YES" vs 
"JOB".  I think it only affected you if you have your consumable value 
per job instead of per slot.

I have now:

#name               shortcut   type        relop requestable consumable 
default  urgency

h_vmem              h_vmem     MEMORY      <=    YES         YES 
1G       0

We used to use "JOB" in that consumable column.
