All these suggestions are ones that I would have made. You need to find 
out where cluster.pl is being started from.

Places to look (after rebooting) include:

* check /etc/inittab again to see that it really is commented out or has
"respawn" changed to "off".

* check /etc/rc*.d to see that there are no things starting it up.

   grep cluster /etc/rc*.d/*

is one way of doing that.

* if that fails try:-

   grep -r cluster /etc
