[LDM #GTC-255179]: when do I need -overwrite in my pqact entry

Whether or not the "-overwrite" option needs to be specified depends on the 
expectation of the program that will process the file.  If the program expects 
multiple concatenated data-products, then the "-overwrite" option should *not* 
be specified.  If, however, the program expects a single data-product, then the 
"-overwrite" option should be specified.
