Condor jobs left in queue with X state at end of completion #26

Reported by Michael Wang

The condor provider currently leaves jobs in X state in the queue. The provider sets the leave_in_queue option to prevent condor from removing completed jobs before the provider has a chance to notice the state change. This has a side-effect of condor_rm'ed job's staying in the queue in an 'X' state. Usually this is not a problem as condor will do a cleanup later, however this can be confusing to users. From condor documentation (condor_rm man page) :
When removing a grid job, the job may remain in the ‘‘X’’ state for a very long time. This is normal, as HTCondor is attempting to communicate with the remote scheduling system, ensuring that the job has been properly cleaned up. If it takes too long, or in rare circumstances is never removed, the job may be forced to leave the job queue by using the -forcex option. This forcibly removes jobs that are in the ‘‘X’’ state without attempting to finish any clean up at the remote scheduler.

To avoid this situation, the provider should ideally remove the job, and do a final cleanup.

Fix for #26, and bad returns from submit
* cancel() now uses condor_rm followed by condor_rm -forcex to clean out jobs left in 'X' state.
* submit() was returning a list of ids, fixed to return just id.
* Doc improvements
