Possibly. Question is where the difference comes from. For further
investigation you could

- compare dynamic library dependencies of your app when run
  through Grid Engine vs. dsh using

   # otool -L application

- run you app with truss (I believe it's named "ktrace" on MacOS)
  and compare system calls issued when your app is run through
  Grid Engine vs. dsh
