> We are running 3.0.2 on a cluster (not a single image system) and

> /var/spool/torque is local.
> When trying to start pbs_mom on nodes with failed jobs, we had a

> at 0 ip 000000000041c7ca sp 00007fffc9806d50 error 4 in
> pbs_mom[400000+53000]
> With the last entry in the mom_logs (different node):
> 08/23/2011 23:02:24;0080; pbs_mom;Svr;pbs_mom;before init_abort_jobs
> If we purge they jobs and remove the job entries from the compute
> node, then the pbs_mom starts OK.
> Before I go investigating further, is this a problem that has been

Are you using the $thread_unlink_calls as a configuration option on the MOMs?
