[slurm-users] PropagateResourceLimits

Hello all.

I'd need a clarification about PropagateResourceLimits.
If I set it to NONE, will cgroup still limit the resources a job can use 
on the worker node(s), actually decoupling limits on the frontend from 
limits on the worker nodes?

I've been bitten by the default being ALL, so when I tried to limit to 
1GB soft / 4GB hard the memory users can use on the frontend, the jobs 
began to fail at startup even if they requested 200G (that are available 
on the worker nodes but not on the frontend)...
