Hi,

I just compiled maui-3.2.6p19 snapshot, and have gotten
it to run with torque. It seems to run OK, however, torque
seems to want to copy i/o files to maui's log directory
rather than the spool. I get these messages:

    PBS Job Id: 20.kalos.partners.org
    Job Name:   STDIN
    An error has occurred processing your job, see below.
    Post job file processing error; job 20.kalos.partners.org on host
kalos.partners.org/0

    Unable to copy file /var/torque/spool/20.kalos.pa.OU to
/var/spool/maui/log/STDIN.o20
    >>> error from copy
    /bin/cp: cannot create regular file
`/var/spool/maui/log/STDIN.o20': Permission denied
    >>> end error output
    Output retained on that host in: /var/torque/undelivered/20.kalos.pa.OU

    Unable to copy file /var/torque/spool/20.kalos.pa.ER to
/var/spool/maui/log/STDIN.e20
    >>> error from copy
    /bin/cp: cannot create regular file
`/var/spool/maui/log/STDIN.e20': Permission denied
    >>> end error output
    Output retained on that host in: /var/torque/undelivered/20.kalos.pa.ER

I kludged it by doing "chmod 1777 /var/spool/maui/log", but
I wonder if this is correct.

Cheers,
  Dave
