Replacing the "==" with a "=?=" and a series of reconfigs and restarts somehow
fixed the issue that "low end" machines were selected.
Now, a different problem shows up.

1. Not all output=out.$(NODE) files get written (2 of 8 missing)
2. Each multi-core machine (single dynamic slot) gets only one MPI node

This is Condor 7.6.0, but the release notes don't promise that 7.6.4 would
behave differently. What's a feasible way to schedule up to TotalCpus MPI
nodes, without dropping the dynamic provisioning of slots?

unfortunately doesn't tell anything about the slot setup...
