[Condor-users] windows xp log off kills jobs

condor -version
$CondorVersion: 6.8.3 Jan  5 2007 $
$CondorPlatform: INTEL-WINNT50 $

I am submitting jobs from machine1 to a pool, all windows xp.  If I then
remote login to a machine running my jobs--say machine2--then logoff,
the jobs on machine2 are killed and new jobs restart a few minutes later
from the idle jobs in the pool.  Damn annoying as you can guess.

In this thread

the poster had the same problem but seemed to think it was only Java
jobs.  Mine are not Java, my executable is a windows .bat file which
then runs a compiled exe.  He had a klugy solution to his Java jobs
which I doubt would work with mine, plus it seems a serious deficiency
and should have a better solution.  I'm believing I'm not the first
person to hit on this problem so is there a good solution?
