I don't think that's the actual error that Brian is seeing, as that's 
just a "verbose()" message (as are another 3 of the 5 instances of 
this).  The only one that's actually an error is this one:


in this function:

  * reset_job_bitmaps - reestablish bitmaps for existing jobs.
  *	this should be called after rebuilding node information,
  *	but before using any job entries.

It looks like it should mark these jobs as failed, is that the case Brian?

Brian: when you removed the partition did you restart slurmctld or just 
do an scontrol reconfigure?

BTW that check was introduced in 2003 by Moe :-)
