I was thinking about this. I wonder if this
is the right thing to do. If the actual
contents of the local spool directory is
empty, or different than what the qmaster
expects, then what point is there for the
qmaster to continue to think that the
jobs exist, or will ever come back?
In other words, shouldn't the contents
of the local spool directory determine
the qmaster's conception of reality?
