I found this in the condor_config:

## KEEP_OUTPUT_SANDBOX is an optional feature to tell Condor-G to not
## remove the job spool when the job leaves the queue.  To use, just
## set to TRUE.  Since you will be operating Condor-G in this manner,
## you may want to put leave_in_queue = false in your job submit
## description files, to tell Condor-G to simply remove the job from
## the queue immediately when the job completes (since the output files
## will stick around no matter what).

I have not tried it, but it sounds like it might help with
your problem.
