It turns out that the above "Condition" was not what was stopping
tasks from running on the node in question, so in case it sheds
(scheds?) any light in why that condition appears in the first
place, the issue here was that the /master/submit host/ had been
left out of the ALLOW_WRITE specification and was thus failing to
achieve the

  command 442 (REQUEST_CLAIM)

on the compute node as it tried to move from "Matched" to "Claimed".

Is that likely to be one of the causes of the "Condition" appearing ?
