[GE users] Many "Job ... Continued" Messages

First, thank you for the group's help in solving another problem I had 
with GridEngine.  This community is clearly committed to helping others...

I have a (perhaps) interesting problem:

I have been submitting jobs with qsub option "-m aes". Each night the same 
set of tests are submitted -- this has been working successfully for 
several months.

However, I am now receiving 10k+ emails nightly of the form "Job <id#> 
(<job name>) Continued".   These occur about 2/minute (irregular both by 
job and time) and are associated with 5 to 10 different jobs at a time 
(there are >100 jobs running).  It doesn't appear to be the application 
because the night-to-night emails are associated with different submitted 
jobs and most of the jobs run without issue.  It also doesn't appear to be 
from any particular queue or machine -- >20 machines have been affected 
from 5 different queues.

Any thoughts on the problem?  Network? Time sync?  The IT guys have 
assured me that they have not made any changes lately....

Thanks in advance for your help,
