You may want to consider alternative ways of collecting information. I
personally think BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS is a lousy way of managing the jobs
output anyway. Anything that requires you to modify bp.conf and restart
the software is stupid.

Check out this link for a discussion of the -all_columns output format
and a couple ways to use it ( one of them is my Python program ).
