for each qrsh a separat sshd is started. This way SGE can keep track  
and control of the started task on a node. Going with the standard  
port wouldn't allow this. Which daemon would be addressed by which  
ssh-call? Using ports you can direct one ssh exactly to one sshd on a  
node. And furthermore (if you use the default rsh) it's a little bit  
of security, as the port is random and wait for a dedicated login  
within a timeframe.
