I tried to see what the rsh wrapper does, adding some 'echo' to custom files...
Surprisingly, to me, there is no echo to the files and I've checked
over all nodes...
Is it possible that the rsh wrapper is not called at all? Tell me if I'm right:

-I add a -catch_rsh option to the PE
-this causes start_pvm to be launched with -n NODE and -c options
-the -c options is interpreted to start_pvm that does:

 if (catch_rsh)

      execvp(rsh_argv[0], &rsh_argv[0]);

This means to me that start_pvm calls 'rsh' in any case... regardless
that a symlink to rsh wrapper has been created in $TMPDIR...

Once the qsub has been launched I have

25862  5299 25862  \_ sge_shepherd-39700 -bg
25863 25862 25863      \_ /bin/sh -f /opt/n1ge6/pvm/startpvm.sh

25875 25872 25863                  \_ [rsh] <defunct>

on the head node, indicating no qrsh activity, hence no tight
integration... The output of ps command is slightly different to the
one showed on the howto page...
