What I was after was what happens when you try.  You've described your setup in 
detail but your results are missing.  When the job exits for example with 107 
and the epilog exits 100 then what happens?  Does the queue go into an error

As per my prior message I think using the starter_method as a wrapper will work 
more reliably than tweaking things in the epilog.
