> The reason why is that Torque sets RLIMIT_RSS to enforce memory

RLIMIT_RSS is simply a noop; we use RLIMIT_AS (vmem, pvmem).
a good thing about this is that it's fully consistent with 
the vm.overcommit_memory=2 (ie conservative) mode.  some people 
find it offputting the way VM counts things like code (usually
mapped multiple times) or F77 arrays that are defined larger than used.
