I just noticed some behavior that doesn't seem right, and I wanted a 
second opinion.  If I submit a job and then stop the execution daemon 
where the job is running using "sgeexecd stop", the execution daemon and 
the shepherd are killed, but the job itself keeps running.  If I ask 
qacct what happened, it lists the job as having failed before writing 
the exit status.  The behavior is the same for 6.0u10 and 6.2.

I seem to recall having had a conversation about this before, and I seem 
to think that this behavior was intentional, so I'd like confirmation 
one way or another before I file an issue.
