Just trying to get our heads around when SLURM_JOB_USER and SLURM_JOB_UID
get set.

Are they set as part of the job payload creation, and so would ignore
and node local lookup, or set as the job gets allocated to the various
nodes it will run on?

I know they're available to the Prolog script, and had always assumed
the former, as in, a job arrives on a node with the variables alreasy
