I also upgraded from 2.3.6 to 2.4.10
and I have the same problem
something really strange in permissions of mom_priv/jobs

in 2.3.6
root at torque-2.3.6 ~> ls -ld /var/spool/torque/mom_priv/jobs
drwxr-x--x 2 root root 4096 2010-09-20 09:42 /var/spool/torque/mom_priv/jobs
and everything is ok

in 2.4.10
if I keep the same permission I have the unlink failed message and .SC stay in jobs directory

if I use

root at torque-2.4.10 ~]# ls -ld /var/spool/torque/mom_priv/jobs
drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 4096 Sep 18 10:39 /var/spool/torque/mom_priv/jobs
it's working but

root at torque-2.4.10 ~> service pbs_mom restart

Shutting down TORQUE Mom:                                  [  OK  ]
Starting TORQUE Mom: pbs_mom: LOG_ERROR::Permission denied (13) in chk_file_sec, Security violation 
with "/var/spool/torque/mom_priv/jobs" - /var/spool/torque/mom_priv/jobs is world writable and not 

what is the good permission for /var/spool/torque/mom_priv/jobs ?

Thanks in advance
