Ah - so I can tell it to ignore the username and run as whatever uid
submitted it; but I can't tell it to ignore the UID and run it as the given
username. That must be it.

Related question: is setting a macro to the empty string the same as leaving
it undefined?  Or is there a specific way to undefine a macro?


"An administrator can also leave UID_DOMAIN undefined. This will force
Condor to always run jobs as user nobody."

So I'd like to be able to undefine it in condor_config.local, without
messing with the global condor_config which defines it to $(FULL_HOSTNAME)
