Actually, thinking about it.. when would the string created by strdup() ever be
freed? The answer is, it wouldn't. There will be a memory leak.

So, after the call to pbs_alterjob() should the pointer be free()ed?

If a structure within the pbs job info storage is merely using a reference to
the passed memory then this could cause further problems later, if not then
it's not a problem.
