[slurm-users] Error in job_submit.lua conditional?

I managed to figure out why this conditional wasn't working: shortly 
before this conditional,  I had another conditional that checked for my 
user_id. If I was submitting a job, it would skip the rest of the 
job_submit.lua file. I had added this so I could test some new features 
out that would have been prevented by the rest of my job_submit script. 
I was so focused on this conditional, I wasn't looking only  a few lines 
above it...

Thanks to all of you who provided debugging suggestions. They helps. 
Once I was printing out and seeing the correct values for partition and 
user_id, I knew my problem had to be elsewhere.
