"qconf -sconf global" and "qconf -sconf <machine name>" all report / 
usr/bin/mail as the mailer and this is the correct path for darwin  
arch boxes running OS X.
At this point I'm confused enough to hope that restarting the execd  
daemon is going to work.  If that fails it will be time to write a  
mailer wrapper that does configurable logging. Anyway its a strange  
issue, I can't reproduce the problem on any other OS X cluster, even  
ones with identical SGE and network settings.
