correct. Or more precise: a PE has the feature BATCH implied in the  
queue setting. You can only add INTERACTIVE, but you can't remove the  
BATCH attribute from the PE (even if you set "qtype NONE").

BTW: Although it's phrased "INTERACTIVE", it's more like an  
"immediate" job. Jobs submitted with: "qsub -now y ..." will also run  
in an INTERACTIVE queue, while "qrsh -now n ..." will go to "BATCH".
