[GE users] Help with starter_method

Hello all...I'm trying to work around the problem with umasks being hardwired 
in SGE to 022, and in digging through messages it seems one option is to use 
starter_method to explicitly set umask.  My problem is that I haven't come 
across significant documentation to describe what I need to have in my 
starter_method file.  With:

umask 002
exec "$@"

	I get:

/SGE/bin/lx24-amd64/starter_mask.sh: line 4: exec: /home/jc/ hbatch -j $NSLOTS 
file1 <param>: cannot execute: No such file or directory

which I've made generic above but basically tells me my shell environment 
hasn't been setup properly.  Normally I'm exporting everything from the 
location I submitted the job and everything works fine.  It appears I need to 
somehow compensate for some default behaviour that isn't happening.  If 
anyone could point me at more detailed documentation than man queue_conf or 
perhaps a suggestion, I'd appreciate it.
