Just to chime in here.  I am running Altera Quartus DSE (Design Space Explorer) which we modified to use SGE in lieu of LSF.  The old LSF implementation used a bsub -K which has a similar effect to qsub sync -Y.  

DSE hasn't changed much over time,  and it has it's own built in threading system.  It fires off seperate threads that each call a qsub -sync Y, so the threads don't terminate.
