net_move calls send_job with a post_movejob as the argument for the post_func
parameter.  In send_job the parent sets up a work task to run post_movejob when
the child exits.  The job_purge in the child is redundant, and the parent is
the right place to do it.

The only other place send_job() is called is in
req_runjob()->svr_startjob()->svr_strtjob2() to send the job to a mom. We don't
want the job to get purged in this case, and svr_strtjob2 sets up its own post
function to do any required cleanup.

This change looks valid to me.
