"Go home and fix your three Bugs!" was the running gag at the Grid
Engine Workshop. My first bugfix here :-)

Starting the Grid Engine execution host on a recent SuSE installation
using a shared NFS mount needs some luck. SuSE uses some kind of
parallel init script execution, see startpar(8) for details. From time
to time the execd is started before the nfs mount succeeded - the init
script won't find the binary and just stop.

The following patch helps - probably it should be applied to

Several SuSE provided init scripts depends on $remote_fs - even ZMD, the
central package management agent - so I don't think you will discover
any issues.
