I'm not aware of any knobs to turn to affect that. Have you tried
putting small negative location constraints for the non-picky resources
on those nodes? Also, you could try putting a smaller stickiness on the
non-picky resources (I don't know whether that will have any effect,
just trying to think of ideas).
