[slurm-users] Weirdness with partitions

Hello all.

We have one partition (b4) that's reserved for an account while the 
others are "free for all".
The problem is that
sbatch --partition=b1,b2,b3,b4,b5 test.sh
fails with
sbatch: error: Batch job submission failed: Invalid account or 
account/partition combination specified
sbatch --partition=b1,b2,b3,b5 test.sh

Shouldn't Slurm (22.05.6) just "filter out" the inaccessible partition, 
considering only the others?
Just like what it does if I'm requesting more cores than available on a 

I'd really like to avoid having to replicate scheduler logic in 
job_submit.lua... :)
