[torqueusers] Bug: Torque can't handle email addresses with
csamuel at vpac.org

Just come across an "interesting" bug in Torque.
A user who has an email address with an apostrophe (')
in it was trying to submit jobs and getting the following
rather cryptic error:
$ qsub test.sh
This is because Torque constructs a fake command line
from all the #PBS lines in your script. It then parses
the list to check you don't have any unmatched quotes
in it and throws that error..
Problem is that ' is perfectly legal in an email address.
I've tried escaping the ' as \' and jobs get submitted,
but then the emails to the user that they've requested
never get sent or received.
