The JobQueue sets the hostname field in the jobqueue table when a JobQueue
instance takes a job and tries to run it.  It is possible these jobs tried
to run on sbe1/sbe3 previously and failed for some reason.

The housekeeper should cleanup the jobqueue table entries once a day and
reset failed jobs, but it won't clear the hostname on a job that has a
hostname set.  There is no easy way for the cleanup to know whether the
job was supposed to run only on that host or whether that host just
claimed the job at some point.  If you want to get rid of these, run
the following SQL command:

UPDATE jobqueue SET hostname = ""
    WHERE chanid = 1021
	    AND STARTTIME in ( 20070108180000, 20070109140000 );

This is a global setting and I think unrelated to your issue.
