In this case, the globus jobmanager is replying properly to the condor
gridmanager's periodic probes, so the gridmanager patiently waits for the
jobmanager to say it's down staging out the files.

Here, the x509 proxy has been refreshed, so the gridmanager tries to
forward the new proxy to the jobmanager. The jobmanager replies with gram
error 10 (PROTOCOL_FAILED), so the gridmanager tries to stop and restart
it hoping that'll clear up whatever's wrong. The jobmanager acknowledges
the stop request, but won't actually stop until globus-url-copy completes.
The gridmanager tries to restart the jobmanager, which fails as the old
one hasn't exitted yet. The gridmanager ends up in a loop trying to talk
to the old jobmanager which says it's just about to quit and trying to
start a new jobmanager that fails because the old one hasn't actually quit

The excerpts you've sent are enough to diagnose the problem. The
additional piece that would be useful to see is the logfile for the
jobmanager process that won't die. I think I know why the proxy refresh
command fails, but the log will hopefully confirm my suspicion.
