Yes I'm also looking forward to SLURM 19.05. We have had lots of issues
with X11 since we upgraded to 18.08 and started using its built-in X11
support. Part of this was resolved by setting
"X11Parameters=local_xauthority" in slurm.conf to reduce locking contention
on the Xauthority file, but now we get a handful of nodes drained every day
with reason "Kill task failed". In ten years of using SLURM I've never had
so many problems as I'm having now. :\
