this is a good point, we need to make sure that the files associated with the
job get cleaned up, but the parent process must call job_purge() at some point,
otherwise the job would persist in the parent process's linked lists
indefinitely (until a reboot, at which time the job would not be recovered
because the job_purge called by the child removed the files).
