Occasionally during program exit with Open MPI SHMEM jobs, we are seeing 
the following message:

srun: fatal: ../../../src/api/step_launch.c:1037 
step_launch_state_destroy: pthread_mutex_destroy(): Device or resource busy

Our environment:

  * 100+ node KNL cluster
  * CentOS 7.4
  * Open MPI 3.x (an interim kit between 3.0 and 3.1)
  * Slurm 17.11.0

This was reported at <https://bugs.schedmd.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4333>  
against a 17.11.0 RC kit, but we are seeing it now in the 17.11.0 
released kit (I confirmed that Moe's fix appears in our sources). Has 
anyone else seen this? Or better yet, has anyone found a way to fix it?
