[gridengine users] Array job running more tasks than allowed by "-tc"

We're running SoGE 8.1.9, and are seeing some odd behavior from an array 
job.  It's going beyond its allowed concurrency:

$ qstat -j 1166285
.
maximum concurrency:        600
.
$ qstat -j 1166285 | grep -c usage
3556

One slightly odd thing is that the job wasn't submitted with a contiguous 
set of tasks -- there are a lot of gaps (partial list follows):

 28-30330:1,30332

but obviously that shouldn't matter.  Any hints as to where we should 
look?  Thanks.
