How do I set maxtasks during regtest?

I have successfully compiled popt and ssmp versions of CP2K-5.1.  When I 
run regtests, I notice that the maxtasks = # of core on the node.  As a 
result, the regtest takes all available cores, which is not a nice thing to 
do to my computational colleagues.  Is there a way to change this?

For the ssmp version, I have tried OMP_NUM_THREADS, but that has no effect.

Best regards,
