Did you ever find a permanent solution to the problem, or are you still 
using getent?

I've encountered it occasionally here, and it appears to relate to 
whether NIS is working correctly when sge_execd starts up.  I've found 
that if ypwhich shows there's no binding, then
    /etc/init.d/sgeexecd stop
    /etc/init.d/ypbind start
    /etc/init.d/sgeexecd start
will make the problem go away on that particular node.  Oddly enough, 
simply bringing up YP again does not resolve the issue.

Of course, this may not work for you (especially if you have more than a 
couple of nodes) and it isn't any kind useful solution anyway.  But it 
is a clue as to what might actually be going wrong.
