According to the man page of `qsub`, it's valid to use ~ and ~user for the -o
and -e switches. I.e. for the location of the output and error files. Putting this into a job script using either:

#$ -o ~ #$ -o ~reuti

will crash the execd. According to the messages file it's getting a wrong
cryptic username:

12/10/2010 18:06:26| main|pc15370|E|invalid user name
""/gH)ESC^H^\e^]^H250377364337350267@361跨373h233363277yqܷ@361跨373`341^]^H260 233363277300233<U+FF21B>363277

Specifying a file instead of a directory:

#$ -o ~/myoutput

will also not work, as it puts the job in error state, but the execd won't be
killed in this case.

Same is happening when used on the command line while using quotes to avoid
expansion by the shell of these shortcuts.
