I can confirm that this is happening with 2.3.1-snap.200804211148
as well as the stock 2.3.0.

It looks like if pbs_server is trying to talk to a mom
which accepts connection but never does anything with it
(due to the node locking up) that connection doesn't drop

In our case pbs_server has 80 connections in "established"
state to a problem node, e.g.:

pbs_serve 3551 root  231u  IPv4          748982477               TCP> (ESTABLISHED)
pbs_serve 3551 root  236u  IPv4          748987070               TCP> (ESTABLISHED)
pbs_serve 3551 root  245u  IPv4          748982948               TCP> (ESTABLISHED)
