Could be a condor bug. Looks like the schedd is detecting the situation
- it knows there ought to be a zombie - but it isn't *doing* anything
about it. Interestingly, code to do something about it *used* to be
there, but is now commented out.

Restart the schedd.
condor_restart -name <machine> -schedd
Make sure you're on a machine that has HOSTALLOW_ADMINISTRATOR privs.
