The timer seems to have helped.  I changed it from 60 to 30000.  My
compilations routinely take 10-15 minutes per file.  Without the change
the files in the state directory were being wiped out around a minute
after start of a compilation.

No, it's not the intended behaviour.  It may be the jobs are taking
long enough that the monitor thinks the files are just leftover.  You
could try adjusting the timeout in (iirc) mon.c, and also looking
inside the state directory with ls while it's running.
