Hi Adam - had the same thing happen to me yesterday (on UGEv8.1.7, but I'm
guessing it might be the same thing)- -

after you restart the qmaster, before it locks up, run a qconf -msconf --
and check the line "schedd_job_info" - if it's set to "true", change it to
"false" and restart qmaster.

Give that a try and see if it helps.
