 Personally I find stupid users to be rather stable in their
continued existence. :)

Sad but true, it is amazing what throughput gains can be achieved by
getting a clever user and educating them how condor works :)

If you're accepting lobbying for pushing this into 6.8 consider this my
request. I'd definitely like to see this as a put-on-hold situation.
Right now we're actually monitoring user's disk usage on our NAS box and
holding their jobs when they get with 1% of their hard quota.

My vote for being in 6.8 series too. After failing to store credd
after password change this is actually the most common cause of repeat
running jobs on my farm.
Making it a configurable option (and defaulting to the old behaviour)
would be an acceptable addition to 6.8 series perhaps?

P.S. Did something change on the mailing list? I'm not seeing my own
emails to the list anymore.

I see all mine in gmail
