I'm not sure about Augustine, though I'd be interested to know.  My sense of other early commentators like Gregory and Aquinas (derived from Susan Schreiner's excellent _Where Shall Wisdom be Found?_) is that the question of Job's perfection was not as much of a problem, or at least that this was not something that featured prominently.  It's when one posits total human depravity as a fundamental theological principle, as do Luther and Calvin, that the problem looms larger.
