[GE users] Multiple problems with CSP installation

this might happen if your auto install template file doesn't have 
CSP_RECREATE defined or it's set to false.

Currently it MUST be set to true for the first time installation 
(CSP_RECREATE=true). Please reinstall the qmaster with updated template. 
Then the files under /var/sgeCA should be generated.


PS: And yes I'd consider this a bug. Please file an issue, if I'm right.
