What would you say a "bit"? I'd imagine it would clear out after at
least 30 seconds, if not right away.

Whats the difference? Doesn't a qdel send a SIGKILL?
Also, the jobs are clearly getting the SIGKILL, because a ps on the node
shows that the jobs don't exist. I'm doing a watch ps, and I can see
that right after I issue the qdel, the processes begin to clean
themselves up and eventually disappear from the process table.
