most likely you've hit the nail right on the head.  after the job finishes,
it connects back to the submit side to transfer files.  it tries to reuse
the same session it had when it was spawned.  in 6.5.5 the default session
duration was 1 hour.  in 6.6.0 it was set to much longer, 100 days.  due to
your clock skew, the session probably expired on one side or the other before
the job finished.

to work around, you can add this to your condor_config:


this change should actually be made for all users of 6.5.X, especially if
you have long-running jobs.  it is not needed in your 6.6.X config files
but it will cause no harm either.

if you are curious, this is the line that clued me in.
