[GE users] Environment Variables - DRMAA

Hi Mohana,

by default no shell is used for starting DRMAA jobs. They get started just with 
a plain execvp() of the 'drmaa_remote_command'. To change this behaviour you can 
add "-shell yes" to 'drmaa_native_specification'. This makes the job execute
as if it had been submitted using

     qsub -b y /path/to/job

with regards to .bashrc sourcing you must ensure that the shell you use
is a login shell.
