Here is something that I've noticed, in case it is helpful.

A few weeks ago I was playing with the DRMAA C API on my laptop and I 
did notice a 2 second delay when running the simple init/exit example 
from http://gridengine.sunsource.net/project/gridengine/howto/drmaa.html

When run via strace, most of the delay was in the two futex syscalls 
called from drmaa_init. I have SGE 6.0u1, FC2, 2.6.9, no bdb, qmaster 
and execd are all on the same host.
