New code has been checked into trunk and 2.2-fixes that does what is required.

The original problem is that the jobs session_id wasn't being sent to
pbs_server for very short jobs.  This is important when keep_completed is

The session_id was being sent in a jobstat request from pbs_server, but not in
the jobstat sent from pbs_mom before the obit.

The incorrect code was encoding the session_id as a resource instead of an
attribute.  When encoded as an attribute, pbs_server would segfault because of
a strlen computing error in server/req_jobobit.c.

Now, all new attrs (with ATR_FLAG_SEND bit) are correctly encoded into the
jobstat and pbs_server won't segfault when it sees a non-resource attribute.

Please test!
