This is a Rocks cluster so after the node
crashed it was reinstalled from scratch. This
removed the local spool directory, which would
explain my problem. In fact, from what you say,
this would happen whenever a Rocks node
is reinstalled if there were running SGE
job when the node crashed, right?

I'm going to manually remove the bogus

As always, thanks for your help. You deserve
a Nobel Prize.
