Actually I think you'll find it's a race condition where Globus notices the 
job has finished and deletes the destination directory before the pbs_mom 
gets the chance to copy the files back.

Is this GT 2, 3 or 4 ?

We've seen this happen occasionally for jobs that come in through our Globus 
gatekeepers from the APAC Grid.

The other time I've seen this happen has been when the user doesn't have the 
correct ssh keys configured, but you'd see predictable failures then so my 
guess would be the race condition.

Good luck!
