I'm just waxing poeting about what I might do to solve this problem. I'm
assuming condor_preen couldn't remove the files because condor_shadow
processes had a hold on them still (what other processes access these
spool files?). So restarting condor might kill off these hung shadows.
But I was looking to you for an explanation of how and why these files
are unremoveable by the preen process.
