1) check who your jobs are *actually* running as. (pslist -e when it's
running, but before it kills your shell :)

Guess: your test jobs run as you, not as the VMX_USER thus - on
killing all that users jobs it kills your logins.

To test I suggest submitting some jobs as a different user - at least
then you can debug it without having to restart everything each
