I have completely hacked my staging in and out of files because of the
horrible syntax and whatever issues the default stagein parameters use.
I do this via environment variables and the prologue and epilogue.

My method of staging in/out offers and exclude list for bringing back
files (with wildcards).  For some reason, I cannot find out where the
bug in PBS (old patched to the tilt OpenPBS) is that gets triggered when
a user stages in large amounts of data _only_ to a single node.
Multiple nodes are not affected for some reason.  It appears to be a
timeout or some other issue, but I've never been able to find out where
the bug is.

Does anybody else have issues with staging in/out of files?
