In the file "sitequeues" I have the GCGSubmitCommand changed into:

GCGSubmitCommand "qsub -eo -r gcg -q medium"

which send the output of any "-batch" option to the medium queue, gives it
the name "gcg", and collects both standard and error output in the same log-
To make sure that the user can start a batch from within any subdirectory,
i.e. to direct the batch queue to his directory, put the following line in
the file "etc/prologue":


which does a ch-dir to the directory the user submitted the job in. That's
about all...

Good luck,
