pbs_mom is throwing the job away, which is probably not what you want - 
put this:

$ignwalltime true

in /var/spool/torque/mom_priv/config

Then you need to look at setting a reasonable default walltime in 
torque on the server - this will set it to be 7 days:

set queue batch resources_default.walltime = 7:00:00:00

After that, you would need to tell the people submitting jobs that if 
they want jobs to run for longer than 7 days, they need to set a 
walltime when they run msub.
