Robert,

Not only can't you change JobQ attributes after they've been created, you can't 
even
see them.  :^(     You can see an change OutQ properties, it couldn't have been 
too
much work to extend this ability to JobQ's

You'll have to delete and recreate the JobQ to change these parameters.  That
shouldn't be a problem, just pick a time when the subsystem is idle.  Then end 
the
subsystem and recreate the JobQ.
