This caught my eye, Googling for it found a single instance, from 2019 
on the list again about jobs on a node mysteriously dying.

The resolution was (courtesy of Uwe Seher):

# The system is an opensuse leap 15 installation and slurm
# comes from the repository. By default a slurm.epilog.clean
# skript is installed which kills everything that belongs to
$ the user when a job is finished including other jobs,
# ssh-sessions and so on. I do not know if other distributions
# do the same or if the script is broken, but removing it
# solved the problem.

Hope that helps!

All the best,
