Hi all.
i'm having a very strange problem with the execution hosts, and i have 
failed to track it.
the log on qmaster says:

qmaster|spider|W|job 249.1 failed on host 
spider3.spiderweb.fh.huji.ac.il general assumedly before job because: 
can't create directory active_jobs/249.1: No such file or directory

i have double checked permissions, and they seem ok. the strangest thing 
is that only about 50% of jobs fail. the jobs return to queue then run 
normally elsewhere. this problem happens with all my nodes (not 
surprising, they are all exactly the same).

I'm running SLES10SP1, kernel x86_64 smp.
