You could wrap your submission call in a script such that it copies
the files to a personal spool dir, changes directory to
that directory and then submits the job from there.
You should be able to do this in a generic way such that it
is re-uable.
Remember to clear it up afterwards.

You could also try not changing the script betwen submission and
execution ;-)
