ok, numerous reports on this.  i guess i'm going to do some controlled
experiments and make sure this feature is still working like we
expect. ;) i'll report what i find as soon as i have some results.

uh, yeah.  sorry.  condor_vacate counts as "evict" for the purpose of

see my previous post (Re: [Condor-users] file transfer problems with
vanilla job) about this...

i don't think streaming is the answer to what you want, either.
you're talking about something like "PERIODIC_CHECKPOINT", but for
transfering all the files at the execute host back to the submit host.
streaming just writes all the data in real-time back to the submit
host, instead.  moreover, our current streaming functionality only
supports STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR.

otherwise, i agree with everything matt hope and dan bradley said.
