[torqueusers] Interactive job issue

I have an application that disconnects itself from the parent and  
makes init as its parent process during startup.

I have modified torque's source so I am able to submit batch scripts  
to interactive jobs too (--enable-shel-use-argv during compilation and  
some changes to qsub.c), but this particular job is killed by MOM as  
soon as it starts because MOM finds the application to have completed  
when it changes its parent process to init and kills it.

I am planning on starting a different process in the same batch job  
that will keep spinning until the original application actually quits.  
Just wanted to know from other torque admins if this is the right way  
to go about solving this.

Torque - 2.3.6
