Like I said, MPICH with RSH doesn't work right when terminating jobs with
CTRL-C. What I do is a "pdsh -a pkill -15 john" and wait a little bit.  jtr
handles all the main signals, and upon getting a SIGTERM (-15) will actually
shut down, but first after saving to the record files after finishing the
current cracking loop. (from what I can tell)

I strongly recommend you getting pdsh if you don't have it.
