This can be risky because the job structures are reused without being
reinitialized. Once the job with the bogus QTemp pointer ends, the job
structure it used is available for use by another new job and that new
job will point to the library you created. Whether you delete the
library or not, this is not good!

The job structures aren't reinitialized until IPL. At least this is the
way it worked the last time I checked.
