Ok, I think I've got a handle on how things are and are not working currently.

It turns out that one node started having segfault-inducing memory errors. This 
(correctly) caused the job to fail when spawned onto that system. The system is, 
it seems, trying to put the pid file where it wants to go (although at some 
point this seems to have switched from being in the central spool directory to 
being in the local nodes $TMP directory).

Now I need to figure out why the pid directory never gets recreated and jobs 
subsequently re-error when re-spawned to new, healthy, nodes.
