queue is currently unuseable on Debian. The potato package of it does
very nasty things to /dev/tty, subsequently breaking any other package
that needs to do things with tty's (e.g. screen, xterm)
Whether this is a generic problem with queue I do not know.
Nevertheless, I've filed a critical bug report against it.
It's a shame; it looks like a fairly nice free alternative to LSF which
is, IMHO, by far the best load sharing and batch queueing system around.
A tad expensive though...
