I'm not clear what you're reporting.  Files in SPOOL should
remain as long as the associated job is still in the queue.  Are
you saying that the job in question left the queue (is no longer
visible in condor_q), but still has a subdirectory in SPOOL?  If
so, that would likely be a bug.  That it's using DMTCP
checkpointing shouldn't have any impact on the behavior, although
it's possible that the DMTCP integration code is somehow tickling
a Condor bug other code isn't.
