More likely, it's

Anyways, the point remains: An R script returns an error code. As long as we have no clue to what the R script does or what the error code means, how are we supposed to help?

According to the help for q(), failures in R itself or its front-ends, would give single digit return codes, so return codes of 10 or more would be generated by the script itself, as in q(status=10).

Or it is something in Condor itself that is failing, in which case you are barking up the completely wrong tree.
