Why are vanilla jobs killed if the submit machine is down? I thought that
vanilla jobs don't communicate (no remote system calls) with the submit
machine during execution. The only critical time I can think of is when a
job ends and the result should be transfered. But why kill a job which is
running for days because the submit machine is only down for a few minutes?
