Hey Chris,

I actually think that's what's happening, which is fine in my case
(for now anyway) as I just need them all to complete, we don't need
them running at the same time.  I'm using a job management system, and
they have the option of triggering a command line after completing a

A better/safer solution might be spawning another job and re-inserting
to the jms queue.

Thanks again,
