 Well, for me, in case (a) none of the epilogue scripts run.
My current problem is:
at /var/spool/pbs/mom_priv/config i've added:
$tmpdir /scratch
 Then a job is submited a /scratch/${PBS_JOBID} is created. And i have
a epilogue &
epilogue.precancel scripts to remove this dir, this works ok on job
completion or then job canceled.
But if a job has a stagein specified with -W and the staging fails the
jobs is but in W state
to be later resubmited, the /scratch/${PBS_JOBID} is created, but none
of the epilogue
scripts are run to delete this dir.

 Do you have an idea?
