(It's not easy for me to have access to the logs, as I
don't directly have access to the scheduler. I got a copy though and I
am reading through.)

Looking at jobs logs, I read lots of ".gislock" lines.
It might be some permission related issue. I partially operated directly
(with my user-id) on many Locations.

The operateor of the scheduler, has naturally, another user-id. I wonder
if I should apply GRASS_SKIP_MAPSET_OWNER_CHECK=1 everywhere.

Thank you Markusi. This is a very useful piece of information. It's
reassuring that this part of the process is ok and the problem lies elsewhere.

None here.
