[torqueusers] no job control

Entering into an interactive job on OS X 10.4.5 results in no job
control in that shell; '-bash: no job control in this shell' gets output
before you get a prompt.   

While in an interactive job at a compute node:
apple-02:~ dbertram$ ps 1 $$
    1  ??  S<s    0:21.82 /sbin/launchd
apple-02:~ dbertram$

Notice the ?? under TT.

Still in the interactive job, entering into a new bash does not help:

apple-02:~ dbertram$ /bin/bash -l
bash: no job control in this shell
apple-02:~ dbertram$

Nor does /bin/bash -i(to force an interactive bash on OS X). 

I'm not sure if this would work or not, but for troubleshooting purposes
I've included it.  In the INSTALL doc, /bin/bash -l in jobs script
submissions is supposed to work for regular job submissions, but doesn't
in my case. 

OS: OS X 10.4.5
Torque 2.0.0p8

Any suggestions/ideas will be greatly appreciated.
