Nothing in Condor caches executables. Please re-check your submit files
and shell scripts. 

If you've submitted a job, the executable is copied to a spool directory at
submit time. If you submit mulitple jobs in a cluster (ie 'queue 100') the
spooled executable is used by default, so editing the executable before
all the jobs have run will not have any effect on jobs remaining to be run.
