The delete is of an array job with many components.

During the delete, it is as if the master chokes.
any new qsub's fail (the infamous GDI message)
Again, it is only deleting 100-300 jobs. Really, not a whole lot of them.

Is there any way to find out further what is happening and why?

Is there any way to increase the timeout before the GDI message appears?
