Also, we have found a critical bug in the
globus-gram-job-manager-13.14-1.2.osg.el5 package that was distributed
as part of the previous release. We do not have a fix ready yet, so we
currently recommend that if you have that version of the package (which
you can verify by typing "rpm -q globus-gram-job-manager" and comparing

the versions), that you downgrade to the previous version of that
package by typing "yum downgrade globus-gram-job-manager". The highest
working version is 13.5-14.osg.

You can ask support via the usual channels. We look forward to your
feedback on this new release.
