So -now will also change the queue type request to "Interactive". Then the 
issue from Patrice came clear: in 6.x it's working as intended. But in the 
manpage of qsub this should be mentioned.

Maybe in 5.3p6 was only a small bug (giving always the error message, although 
it run correctly), which is already corrected in 6.x. For 5.3p5 I can't say 
anything - we don't have. - Reuti
