Re: [Condor-users] Flocking drawback

I am pretty sure that the requirement expression is correct since if his
jobs had really started they would return an error since they can access the
input files. But that doesn't happen, they just hang around until a machine
in pool A is free.
As to the other possibility (another job) it is impossible since there were
no other jobs in the queues at the time, and anyway condor_q -global -run
showed me that his jobs were "starting" on the machines that I saw being
claimed at the same time. 
Plus, as you can see from the other messages on this subject, Michael Rusch
wrote that he faced the same problem. I guess there must be a bug somewhere.

The solution of tampering with the priorities doesn't work for me since I
don't have the necessary permission on pool B.
