I've started seeing the occasional OpenMPI "mpirun" get
left behind on nodes after a job has gone for no apparent
reason. Dunno why it's not getting kill by PBS.

It's not the children, just the original mpirun command.

It doesn't use any CPU, so it doesn't bother us much, we
just get nagged nightly when our housekeeping cron job
notices user processes on nodes they don't have jobs on.
