The current behaviour is indeed funny.
	qrsh "(cd /data/local && hostname)"

results in the file(s)

	~/local && hostname).e743
	~/local && hostname).o743

Perhaps something as banal as "~/QRSH" (analogue to the qlogin behaviour)
would be a cheap/reasonable solution that also permits easy cleanup of these
output files at a later date.

It would, however, be nice to have a '-o' option for qrsh/qlogin for more
control (eg, -o /dev/null could be a popular choice)
