The matchmaking only happens every so often - see the
NEGOTIATOR_INTERVAL setting in the manual. When you submit a job,
the schedd sends a request to the central manager asking it to
perform a matchmaking cycle. The matchmaker is free to ignore that
request (it might be busy in the middle of another one, or it may
have decided that not enough time as passed since the last one - at
a minimum, it will always wait 20 seconds between matchmaking cycle,
and it is not possible to make that number lower)

How long are you seeing jobs stay idle? If it's longer than a few 
minutes, something else is happening.
