[torqueusers] Torque MOMs terminating jobs immediately after starting

I am running Torque 2.3.6 (in --ha mode if that makes any difference).

Only randomly I am seeing the following behaviour with the MOMs.

A job would be accepted by the server and scheduled by the Moab  
(5.3.1) scheduler, but then after the job is shipped to the compute  
node, it gets terminated right away by the node with the following in  
its log.

03/02/2009 12:00:26;0001;   pbs_mom;Job;TMomFinalizeJob3;job  
5619.bmiclustersvcd1.cchmc.org started, pid = 22521

03/02/2009 12:00:26;0080;   pbs_mom;Job; 
5619.bmiclustersvcd1.cchmc.org;obit sent to server

As I mentioned earlier, this is very random. It does this even with  
interactive jobs, so it is not something to do with the batch scripts.  
See below:

velge9 at bmiclusterd1:~> qsub -I -lnodes=bmi-xeon3-04
qsub: waiting for job 5620.bmiclustersvcd1.cchmc.org to start
qsub: job 5620.bmiclustersvcd1.cchmc.org ready

qsub: job 5620.bmiclustersvcd1.cchmc.org completed
velge9 at bmiclusterd1:~>

I am baffled. Any help appreciated.
