[torqueusers] bad connect from x.x.x.x

This always happens on my Linux cluster when a pbs_mom is restarted
without being shutdown cleanly.  For me the only fix is to restart
pbs_server, which alwasy fixes our problem.

I haven't seen this issue on our OS X cluster (although I do see other
problems on that platform :)
