That's because you missed the:

#PBS -k oe

from your PBS script!

$ man qsub
       -k keep Defines which (if either) of standard output or standard  error
               will  be  retained on the execution host.  If set for a stream,
               this option overrides the path name for that  stream.   If  not
               set, neither stream is retained on the execution host.
