[Mauiusers] completed jobs still shown in queue

qdel didn't work for me - something about the job being in an invalid state for that operation. 

All the jobs involved were on a system that was very loaded (8 cpus, all at 99% usage). I suspect the heavy loading of the system caused delays in communication which in turn caused some sort fo message time out.

We se the same behavior periodically.  We are running torque-1.2.0p1 and maui-3.2.6p11.  Not only is this an anoyance, but it also prevents maui from scheduling jobs on those nodes.  Most of the time you can qdel them.

I have 4 simple jobs stuck in my queue. The jobs ran to completion, but they are still shown as being in the queue:

$ showq

     4 Active Jobs       4 of   22 Processors Active (18.18%)
                         1 of    7 Nodes Active      (14.29%)

A tracejob shows that these jobs completed and exited w/o any errors:

$  tracejob 3186

                          resources_used.cput=00:00:00 resources_used.mem=5408kb

Any idea why these jobs are still shown in the queue? What is the best way to get rid of them?
