Update to StatTransfer v12 and minor fixes.

April 9, 2014

At 12:30 today we updated to version 12 of StatTransfer.    You can use StatTransfer locally by going to the Mathematics menu, or you can run it on an RCE Powered node.  There is also a command line version, to use the CLI version simply type `st` at a command prompt.

We also made some minor fixes to a few applications that spawned terminals when they started, the fix keeps the unnecessary terminal from starting.  The batch watch utlility was also fixed.  If you choose, email is now sent upon batch job completion.
