I hadn't realized that jobs can be scheduled to run on a node that is still
in "completing" state from an earlier job. We occasionally use epilog
scripts that can take 30 seconds or longer, and we really don't want the
next job to start until the epilog scripts have completed.

Other than coding a little loop to wait until the desired nodes are "idle"
before scheduling a job, is there an automated way to say "don't start a job
on a node until it reaches 'idle' status?"
I'd recommend taking a look at the following options in slurm.conf:
* CompleteWait,
* reduce_completing_frag (in SchedulerParams).
