submitting a job with qsub -sync y can result in an endless wait when the event
client will be killed with "qconf -kec 11".

The trace below shows the qsub gets the kill event and removes the event client
properly. The submitted job will not be killed and continues to execute. After
the job finish the qsub client does never exits because it does not recognize
the end of the job.

I now understand what's wrong here.  The problem is that japi_exit() will shut
down the event client thread, but not the other way around.  If the event client
thread is killed, any blocked japi wait calls will remain forever blocked.  The
solution would be to have an event client shutdown trigger a call to japi_exit().

Changed the Subcomponent.

lowering priority because admin must kill the event client explicit to ran into
this issue
