TORQUE doesn't (yet) have BLCR support, so there isn't a lot we can do
at this point.  The BLCR people can probably answer this better since
I'm just guessing...

But I support failing because of the output file makes sense.  Can you
specify an output file in your homedir with mpirun?  If so, then it
would still exist for the restart.
