Is there no way to circumvent this restriction? I'd like to see stderr
and stdout in one file so the temporal relationship between info and
error messages in my jobs is preserved.

you can run your job with a batch script wrapper and redirect the
stderr to stdout (obviously OS dependent)

windows (just taking a guess ;)

your_real_exe %*  2>&1

which will pass through all the arguments and redirect stderr to
stdout. Obviously if the batch itself dies you would still want the
stderr just in case.

Obviously the pain with this is the executable changes to being a
transfer_input_file and anything which wanted to introspect the
executable from the class ad won't work anymore.

You could get round that in various ways though.
