    With minimal expceptions, most killed jobs are commited to allow for the data that was backed up to still be available for restore.

    I offten ran into this with our huge 17TB exchange backups that would write new data to the other DDB partiton because a DDB recon was running which caused the library to fill up fairly quickly.  I would kill the job and run data aging which reclaimed the space for me.
