Hi All,

I'm seeing the following problem in SGE V6u3_1:

- A user started to complain that his jobs were not being executed 
although there were free machines;

- Indeed the machines were free (no jobs were shown by qstat) but under 
very heavy high load, above the defined threshold, not allowing new jobs 
to be executed.

- The load was originated by old jobs not properly killed (we could see 
several processes, using ps xuawww, still running in the machine)... 
Somehow SGE lost control...

- The logs on the machine showed something like:
