[gridengine users] jobs randomly die

It's a limit being reached, of some sort. Do you have a RQS of any kind (qconf -srqs)? We see this for job-requested, or system set RAM exhaustion (OOM killer, as mentioned 'dmesg -T' on compute nodes often useful), as well as time limits reached. What is the whole output from 'qacct -j JOBID'?
