[torquedev] Patch suggestion regarding "job started" mail

We've been running with the attached patch for a while.
What it does is moving the sending of "Job started" mail until the job
is actually started according to the mom instead of sending the mail as
soon as the server has handed it off to the mom.

The reason for the patch is that if the prolog refuses to start a job
for whatever reasons (like a full filsystem or something like that)
the job gets deferred but the job-started mail has already gone out.
And gets resent when the server tries to start the job again and
again ...

We have so far not seen any problems with this.
