Yes, I figured that out, but I was hoping there was a way to avoid
having to put something in the job submission file.  This is to avoid
problems with users using old submission files after the program has
been changed and having it fail miserably.

On a related note, what exactly is the pattern matching algorithm?  I
tried a pattern like "/*/execute/dir_*/*", but it didn't work.  Are
you only allowed one asterisk, or is it that an asterisk will only
match one path component (i.e. will not match a '/')?  The idea was to
have a "universal" pattern for a scratch directory.
