I do not think this is the cause. The "job" has exited, leaving orphanned dars
and darmons still going as you said. There is interprocess communication
going on here and also some hidden place where the dar sequence number is
kept (and is not reset in this failure). So, the next time I try, the
following dar slices have higher numbers.
