[GE users] Understanding the jobs/ directories under the spool (common vs. .common)

I'm trying to figure out why I've got a qmaster that crashes just  
after spitting out this error:

main|55p02g|E|not enough memory for unpacking pe_task "jobs/ 

The ".common" file is interesting, there is only one job directory  
that has that:

> -bash-3.2# find . -name ".common" -print
> ./5285/1-4096/1/.common

All of the other 200 and 400-CPU parallel jobs don't have a ".common"  

And looking at that directory we see:

> -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 24533 Sep 30 09:26 common
> -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 24552 Sep 30 09:26 .common
> -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  1326 Sep 30 09:26 past_usage

Is there anything odd about this? Would it be normal to have a common  
and a .common file in a job directory? I'm deep into directory  
structures that I don't really understand all that well here.
