I'm glad you were able to solve this issue. As far as sending it to me directly, if you send it to me and the mailing list or to the mailing list only I only see one message either way, and it will arrive at the same time both ways, so I didn't actually notice that you sent it to me directly as well as the mailing list.

Did your jobs directory get destroyed or did you relocate it? (I'm just wondering how you had the job files if the directory was destroyed) What is the error pbs_server gives you when you copy the files? I would expect this to work as you mentioned 2.5.3 and now you're on 2.5.5, and there is no difference in job files between these versions.
