I'm checking in code into trunk that does this. If the umask value starts
with 0 then it is converted to decimal, if it does not start with 0 then it
is treated as a decimal value.
So if a user passes -W umask=022 and then they do a qstat -f on the job they
will see that the umask job attribute has a value of 18 since the attribute
value is displayed as a decimal number.
I may end up backporting this to the 2.3-fixes branch, since I would
consider treating a umask of 022 as decimal 22 as a bug. Anything without a
leading zero will still be considered a base 10 value
