Ok, thanks.
I tried it, but the error is not triggering anymore. Since I tried a
couple of times enabling just single queues, the jobs got started and
with less jobs waiting the error seems not to happen.

The mtrace log file was getting very big, I stopped SGE and it was at
over 700MB, after just some minutes. Is this normal? What do you want me
to do when the error triggers again and I get a 700 MB file? Send i to
you? 8)

Thanks, Richard
