Thanks! I killed them, Does PBS cleanup processes after a job ends
automatically? Or is there a suitable flag? These are non-shared nodes
so no risk of stepping on another jobs processes. All 8 cores are
always assigned to same user.

If not is it a OK fix to put a pkill in the epilogue for all normal
usernames. Any caveats? Or better ideas?
