Thanks Marcus, that works.
Though, ahem, SLURM/SchedMD, if you're listening, would it hurt to cover this in the documentation regarding prolog/epilog, and maybe give an example?
Just a thought,

the output of task-prolog is sourced/evaluated (not really sure, how) in
the job environment.
Thus you don't have to export a variable in task-prolog, but echo the
echo export TMPDIR=/scratch/$SLURM_JOB_ID
The variable will then be set in job environment.
