The execution node is still in "claimed" state and the job is marked as executing although all output data has already been transferred back to the submit node and the process is no longer running on the execute node! It seems as if Condor just loves the job and doesn't want to release it :-)

This seems to be a feature of Condor: if an execute node has been claimed,
it will continue to work on jobs by the same user --- until the lease expires.

ALso, CLAIM_WORKLIFE might be the culprit.

Can you extract the config lines in effect (the ones that don't start with 
a hash sign, and are non-empty) so we can have a closer look?
