may be this is a stupid question, but I'd like to limit the used/usable
number of cores to the number of slots that were reserved for a job.

We often see that people reserve 1 slot, e.g. "qsub -pe smp 1 [...]"
but their program is then running in parallel on multiple cores. How can
this be prevented? Is it possible that with reserving only one slot a
process can not utilize more than this?

I was told the this should be possible in slurm (which we don't have,
and to which we don't want to switch to currently).
