How to kill a hanging job?

There is a policy being discussed about this. See:

written by Graeme and Matt.

Part of the problem is that the user doesn't see any difference between a job that died and one that was killed by a system administrator. One of the request is to get the job wrapper catching the signal the standard tools send so that an appropriate message can be returned and possibly also some cleanup be done. This last part is being discussed at the TCG.
