I've just done an experiment on our dev cluster.  Submit job, stop grid
engine, delete the file representing me, restart grid engine.  The job
survives and I can then recreate the user with qconf -auser which I
couldn't when the user had a file on disk.

This makes sense as the user wouldn't need to exist if enforce_user
was set to false.  I suspect enforce_user is only checked at job submission.
