[GE users] trivial: EXEC_HOST_LIST format?

Nope, we set it like;

EXEC_HOST_LIST=`hostname`
SUBMIT_HOST_LIST=`hostname`
...


In our auto.conf file, and only run the installer on hosts that we want
in grid. :-)

Yes, you were right - my editor auto-pads with tabs and I didn't catch 
them but I checked again with an editor that hilites tabs and tried 
tabs both in the context of a single line and multiple lines.

It turns out that inst_sge doesn't mind tabs in a single line, but 
fails when the XXXX_HOST_LIST line contains newlines with or without 
the continuation characters '\'.  

Is there a different continuation character that is valid?

This seems like an odd format for a system that handles 1000's of 
nodes.  Do SGE admins really have single lines defining HOST_LISTs 
that span 10s of thousands of characters?
