The VDT team has essentially zero experience with SGE, which is a 
problem. I do believe that the Globus GRAM 4 adapter relies on the 
reporting file.

I've copied Jeff Porter on this email because he is the one who is 
fixing the Globus GRAM 4 adapter for SGE. Perhaps he'll be able to 
give some insight into the problem.
