[GE users] Schedd messages file filling up

Hi Les,

we added the logging to give admins a hint in case there is a
danger Grid Engine scheduler resource reservation is undermined
by jobs that run longer than expeced. In principle this shouldn't
ever occur except if jobs were submitted without -l h_rt/s_rt limit
and a too small sched_conf(5) "default_duration" is being used to
give some order of magnitude for the duration of such jobs.

We must deliberate what other possibilities might exist to provide
admins with such a hint required for tuning sched_conf(5)
"default_duration" parameter. In the meantime I guess we can only
disable that logging for 6.0u7.

You should be able to overcome the logging by specifying a values
such as "14::" with "default_duration".
