you don't need an epilog to solve this problem.   use OSC's mpiexec job
launcher to replace mpirun from (
http://www.osc.edu/~djohnson/mpiexec/index.php). Since this replacement job
launcher uses TORQUE's TM API instead of ssh to launch the remote jobs
TORQUE is aware of all processes that belong to the job and will properly
clean them up after a job hits its walltime.
