I just confirmed, START=FALSE did set the node into operator mode and the jobs died. Not sure why it seemed to work the first time.
Setting it to undefined did the right thing.

I have my START _expression_ evaluate to FALSE when certain filesystems become unmounted/unmountable (using STARTD_CRON_*). Empirically the cluster keeps on rolling, it just doesn't start new jobs. The behavior that I expect and want.
I use partitionable slots throughout.
