[torqueusers] mom_job_sync not working???

I am running torque 3.0.5 and have set the mom_job_sync  = True (which
is the default since 2.0 anyway)

Nevertheless, jobs in state E do not get removed after the node was
resinstalled and obvioulsy does not know about the job any more.

from the server logs:

07/31/2013 11:24:10;0008;PBS_Server;Job;236751.tscc-mgr.local;Job deleted at request of gpratt at tscc-login2.local

 sending a SIGKILL

07/31/2013 12:36:35;0080;PBS_Server;Job;236751.tscc-mgr.local;Request invalid for state of job EXITING

and the job never gets cleaned out. From the manual "If a job exists on
a compute node in a pre-execution or corrupt state, it will be
automatically cleaned up and purged."  mom_job_sync should sent a purge
request instead of a qdel.

 Am I missing something?
