Well, whether this was the wisest course of action or not remains to be
seen but so far, so good. I just suspended the condor_schedd process

ps -ef | grep schedd | grep condor | awk {'print $2'} | xargs kill -STOP

Did the edits and then unsuspended it with:

ps -ef | grep schedd | grep condor | awk {'print $2'} | xargs kill -CONT

It certainly suspended the process. Whether my running jobs stay running
is playing out now. Looks okay though.
