I tracked it down to src/xbq_jcall.c cb_jqueue().

I checked the functionality of gbch-xr after patching, but i DID NOT 
check if it affects some other GTK component.

See attached file.

Thanks I'm just doing some updates at the moment to cope with something someone else wanted (they wanted the user permissions file to be "default + exceptions" instead of at present as some environments want to run jobs which don't have any particular user files) and I'll make sure that goes in.

I have also "silently" put in an option to the "gbch-cjlist" program to let jobs sit in one file rather than a command file and a job file and was thinking of making that an option - probably a standard one - to gbch-xr and the "unqueue" option of gbch-xq. Thoughts/comments welcome. In the next version of GNUbatch which I'm planning to resume in about a month it does that by default.

gbch-xr is a rewrite of the Motif program which I was working with before in the Motif directory but I couldn't use that on GNU stuff (you have to in the cases of things like AIX and Solaris which don't have GTK) so things are a bit flung together.
