Sorry, I don't know what I was thinking when I typed that.  The max jobs
is a per-host setting, so there should be one row per host and no NULL
host entry.

Those should be OK.

What do you see in the backend and frontend logs when you run both with
"-v database".  That will show you all SQL queries.  Grep out the ones for
the jobqueue table and see what values are being put in the table.
