    Rework of experiment termination. The wrapper script that is invoked · 9f692188
    Leigh B. Stoller authored
    by the web server forks a child to do the actual work of calling tbend
    and other stuff. The parent returns right away and the script ends.
    When the experiment termination (child) ends, an email message is sent
    to the user that issued the termination request. To prevent multiple
    clicks, I added a DB field called expt_terminating that is a DATETIME
    field.  If the field is set, the script fails and the user is told to
    be more patient. I used a DATETIME field mostly for debugging purposes
    so we can track and future problems.
