[GE users] policy configuration

I'm unable to replicate this issue on SGE 6.0u7 (official lx24-amd64  
binaries) running on Centos 4.3 Linux on an AMD Opteron.

The server is actually a guest OS running under VMware Server but the  
host server is also Opteron based.

I fired up the Qmon binary (after installing openmotif and openmotif- 
devel RPMS) and had no trouble going to the policy config panel.

I set max functional jobs to 999 and max pending to 99:
