We have a user who needs their output files to go to a specific  
directory on the local node.
He specified the paths with:

#PBS -o /atlas/data08/OSG/usatlas1/output
#PBS -e /atlas/data08/OSG/usatlas1/error

But the node is trying to scp it back to the submit host per the  

Unable to copy file /var/spool/PBS/spool/34696.nyx.e.OU to
usatlas1 at gate02.grid.umich.edu:/atlas/data08/OSG/usatlas1/output

But according to the qsub manpage:

Where path_name specifies an absolute path name, then the qsub will  
                       the name of the host on which it is executing  
for the hostname.

Doesn't this sound like it says it will copy on the local host?  Not  
try to copy back to the submit host?

But then ware does $usecp in the config come into play?
