I would like to add another observation I made: I played with the  
h_rt and h_cpu limits of the queue. I found that if a job gets killed  
because it hits the h_rt limit, only the walltime is updated in qacct  
for that user. If on the other hand the job gets killed because it  
hits the h_cpu limit, both the walltime _and_ the cputime are update  
correctly. I observed the same behavior when the job is submitted  
with -l h_cpu=... versus -l h_rt=....
