Hi Mark,

This permission issue is not just limited to STDOUT and STDERR.   The 
problem is if a job
is submitted as -b y, any output the job generates will have a file 
permission of 644. 

Ideally, I'd like to be able to use any umask to manage output file

I'm a bit confused here.
I thought that the SGE_STDOUT_PATH/SGE_STDERR_PATH files should be 
created before the prolog is invoked. Doesn't chmod on SGE_STDOUT_PATH and
SGE_STDERR_PATH within a prolog script work?

And if a cron job can be used to fix up file permissions afterwards, 
an epilog could do the same - but more efficiently, since it already has 
working directory.

In general, I would suspect though that the rest of the group probably
should not have write permission on the files before a job has completed.
