Yes - I've both restarted and resubmitted the jobs - with no change in
behaviour. This makes me believe that the killtime is not the right
parameter. From the manual:
Kill the job if it does not complete in the indicated time. As for the -a
option, the time is specifed using notation compatible with at(1). Note
that the time is relative to the time of the initial transmission attempt.
The default kill time is ``now + 3 hours'' (three hours from the time the
job is first processed). To retry for an hour, ``now +1 hour'' could be
So how is "initial transmission attempt" defined? I believe that my jobs
expire before the initial transmission attempt.
