I do not need to remove home directory after job completes: next time the same user's job lands on the same host, there will be no need to create the directory again. Is there any configurable process that SGE will start before the job and that will not try to cd to user's home directory before start? I had hopes for prolog (global), but apparently is it not a viable candidate. Thank you, Ilya.
