We can't really diagnose it from your description.
Worse yet, we can't imagine how this could be distcc's fault.

What's the minimal -j value where you observe the problem?
What's the simplest Makefile for which you observe the problem?
Does the problem happen with just Make (I don't trust scons as far as I can throw it :-)?
Can you post your Makefile (perhaps it has an error)?
