Interesting!  It would be good to file a bug report with SchedMD on this 
problem.  I guess one would need to carefully document the creation of a 
new cluster and prove in what way accounting records are absent, and 
what difference it makes when slurmdbd is restarted repeatedly.  Are you 
up for this task?
