are these normal serial jobs, or any special applications which jump  
out of the process tree? The CPU time is measured by SGE due to the  
attached additonal group_id (whether they jump out of the process  
tree or not), while the s/u_time is just the time the shepherd gets  
from the returned process (like `time my_application`).

When the information is not send back, e.g. because the job (and so  
the shepherd) was killed by a qdel or reached the h_rt, then there  
are now values to report.
