[slurm-users] Decreasing time limit of running jobs (notification)

We were trying to increase the time limit of a slurm running job

scontrol update job=<jobid> TimeLimit=16-00:00:00

But we accidentally got it to 16 hours

scontrol update job=<jobid> TimeLimit=16:00:00

This actually timeout and killed the running job and did not give any

Is this a bug, should not the user be warned that this job will be killled ?
