I was just looking at your list of processes and remembered one thing
that might make a difference. SGE on Linux does not have by default
enabled the code that sends the signal to the group of processes, see:


This was discussed several times on the SGE lists, please search the 
archives for details.

When disabled, I also had problems with killing parallel jobs. I 
enabled it (that means recompiling...) and I never saw these problems 
again - and I remember now that I even wrote this to the lists... 
seems like my memory is overloaded ;-)
