Thanks Nat!
it becomes pretty messy when you have something like 5 or 10 (or more) useless jobs, and it becomes also pretty much disk-space consuming.
Of course one could delete manually the directory, but then I guess the program would not very well deal with a missing directory (i.e. missing job's files).
Flagging is a nice way to get around the messy situation, but I will appreciate the 'delete' button!
Thanks again,
all the best,
