Recent changes have been made to Torque to allow for either behavior.  A 
configure option --disable-qsub-keep-override has been added and is 
available in the torque-2.3.4-snap.200809221601.tar.gz snapshot and will 
be in future snapshots of the 2.4 line.  Default behavior is now the 
same as before.  Using the configure option will give the user the 
flexibility to use -o -e to specify where the files should go.
