Timothy, did you use qdel to kill the job??

Try to logon to the node and do a kill by hand and see if the behaviour is
the same. Also...

>From queue_conf(5):

 Per  default,  the signals  SIGSTOP,  SIGCONT  and SIGKILL are 
 delivered to the job to perform these actions.

Since SIGKILL can't be masked, may be SGE should first send SIGTERM, wait a
bit, before sending SIGKILL.

I know we can set up a terminate_method to get this behaviour, but sending
SIGTERM before SIGKILL looks more correct to me.
