Further information to the failure of the sge commands for some unix
groups of users.
 
Setting the debug level to 10 and running the qstat command gives for
the last few lines of stdout:

    63  15359 47241863851776 		--> sge_log() {
    64  15359 47241863851776     sge_log: ctx is NULL
    65  15359 47241863851776     ../libs/sgeobj/sge_answer.c 937 can't
resolve group

I attached the full debug output.

Thanks

Henk
