Shared gram_condor_log

Burt asked about VDT Support Ticket #1123, in which he seems to have a shared gram_condor_log: multiple user jobs share it, but it's only writable by a single user, and this causes failures. Alain is still looking into it, and coordinating with Burt

GridFTP log and MonaLisa

In VDT 1.3.7, the shift to Globus 4 moved the location of the GridFTP log file from $GLOBUS_LOCATION/var to $GLOBUS_LOCATION/var/log. Unfortunately, Monalisa looks for it in the former location. For VDT 1.3.8 we'll put a link to it so that MonaLisa can find it in either location, and we'll note this as a known problem in VDT 1.3.7.

Vikram is waiting for a new build from the VDT to deal with an authorization problem that is holding up the web-services version of PRIMA. Alain told him that it's not hard to build a one-off version of Globus with the approrpriate fix, and it will be faster than waiting for the VDT, which has to get a real patch from the Globus folks.
