It probably doesn't then. I've never run it as I believed the docs and
found it unsuitable for my cluster anyway. The last major revision
documented an overhaul of the scheduler that should have provided
rescheduling at job execution time. That would have been ~4 years ago, so
your knowledge probably isn't out of date.
