Expanding the host list for bjobs-m

If we puts a list variable containing about 1300 equipment into the bjobs(bjobs -u all -m "$list"), a segmentation fault (core dump) occurs.

Dev checked code. The host list in bjobs -m supports 512 hostnames at most.

The host to put in bjobs -m is irregular, so this makes it difficult to use host groups.

I'd appreciate it if you could improve it to list more hosts on bjobs -m.

    Increasing this would require a complete recompile, as well as significant testing to ensure event/state files did not become corrupted when extreme lists are used.

    This is not something that we can accomodate in the foreseeable future.
    If there is interest from other customers, we can reconsider this in the future.
