[GE users] killing idle interactive jobs

I'm using wrappers around qrsh to start remote interactive jobs. For the
most part people are good about exiting from the application when they are
done. On occasion they will forget and spend several days idle taking up a
slot until we kill the job. Does anyone have any good ideas about how to
timeout an interactive session? Obviously GE can't know what the user is
doing in the application (matlab mostly) and attempts to idle-out based on
keyboard input will not work (long run-times).
