[slurm-users] Suspended and released job continues running in a "down" partition

Suspend is really nothing more than hitting ^S on the job, so there is 
no interaction between it and the partition once it gets running.

What behavior would you expect? Suspend is not cancel, which would need 
to be done to get the job out of that partition (even if it were 
checkpoint, then cancel to be resumed on another node).
