I don't use Ocean, but the problem of SGE sometimes
not killing the whole job is a known one. It's the
side effect of a fix, but the root cause comes from a
bug in the Linux NFS daemon.

Take a look at Andy's email:

So you need to re-enable the code, and compile SGE
from source.

Since 5.3 beta 1 is a little old, may be you should
take this chance to upgrade to SGE p6 which was
released  last week.
