I don't know if this would help your problem, but in the past when I've seen 
similar I've done:

qsig -s0 $JOBID

That tells the pbs_mom to send signal 0 to the lead process.  That doesn't 
actually do anything except raise an error if that process no longer exists, 
and the pbs_mom then realises that the job has died.

Not had to do that for a long time though!
