[torqueusers] Force a job to rerun after mom has crashed

That's kinda what I figured.

I do agree that routinely using "qdel -p" to clear a job from a downed
node is a bad, but sometimes (very, very rarely) required practice.  In
the 6 or so years I've been working with Torque, I think I've done it 2
or 3 times total, and we've literally handled several million jobs at
least, during that time.

Thanks for clarifying.

As far as setting a node to offline any running jobs will continue to run. If the offline is cleared on the node the job will still continue to run uninterrupted.
