Hmm.  I'm use /etc/passwd.  There are no execd_params parameters  
set.  And yet the group name (from /etc/group) specified for the user  
in /etc/passwd does not work.  I've tried "@group", "group", "@gid",  
and "gid".  I also tried adding "USE_QSUB_GID" to execd_params.  I  
checked my current gid with "id -g" and updated the userlist  
accordingly.  But still no go.  Only individual user names works for me.
