I'm guessing that the problem is that the job is running as a user that

Can anyone confirm this?

This sounds extremely likely. What OS are you running on.

I don't know how FORTRAN programs determine where the temp dir is but
you could try altering you TMP or TEMP environment variable to point
to something like ./tmp (.\tmp for windows) so it writes to a subdir
of the working directory (this can be done by a wrapper script on the
job or via the condor submit.

A side effect of using a subdir of the condor directory is that the
files will not be transferred back (which I would guess is the desired

You may need to create said directory as part of your jobs
initialization code (I don't know if FORTRAN will create the subdir
for you if it doesn't exist)
