The d indicates that the job is being deleted and combined with the 
state 'r' means the job is deleted while it was running.
The t is for transferring or trasitioning state which means the job is 
moving from one state to other.
(Ref source/common/symbols.h and the fn job_get_state_string() in 
source/libs/sgeobj/sge_job.c ;-))
I hope you could have interpreted the meaning.
