I ran into another issue: on a cluster, the home folder may be
different than on the access box. In that case, the .ipython/security
does not exist and the engine will not start (I've just tested this).

Well, first I have to try to understand what is going on, as I don't
even get the log files after the engine submission !

Also, I've tried to extract the job id (it seems it is needed), but
the BatchEngineSet.parse_job_id extracts everything that is matched by
the regexp describing a job (it uses group()). I had to put "Job
<(\d+)>" as a regexp, so group() returns, for instance, "Job <1234>"
instead of "1234". I may submit a patch to get group(1) and modify the
PBS regexp accordingly.
