[slurm-users] Can't run jobs after upgrade to 17.11.5 due to memory?

I see this in the debug logs:
"memory per node set to 1M in partition bdwall"

I seemingly can alleviate this if I set RealMemory=foo in the Node definitions, but this just seems like something that shouldn't be necessary.
Did this become a required field after 16.05??

    Nothing I assume isn't correct:
    DefMemPerNode           = UNLIMITED
    MaxMemPerNode           = UNLIMITED
    MemLimitEnforce         = Yes
    PropagateResourceLimitsExcept = MEMLOCK
    CPU vars aren't set and never were.
