[GE users] Setting permissions for -e -o output

	Running a SUSE 10 grid with a SUSE 9.3 qmaster...

	We have a scenario where the standard output or error for some SGE tasks may 
need to be overwritten by different users.  The problem is that despite 
having umasks for all users set to 000, SGE insists on writing out these 
files with permissions set to -rw-r--r--.  I've configured 


to contain the umask, logging in as that user on all machines has the mask set 

	I've been wracking my brains to figure out where SGE would be grabbing this 
permission mask from, or whether it's hardwired internally(doubtful).   I 
sure didn't want to set root's umask to 000...:P

	Our workaround is to check for and delete the file if the ownership is wrong, 
or simply rename them, but I'm wondering if there's a more elegant method.
