[GE users] xterm path related weirdness with 6.1u2

2 strange things with 6.1u2:
According to the manpage for sge_conf I should be able to define the
path to xterm at the exec host level:
> xterm is the absolute pathname to the X Window System terminal
> emulator, xterm(1).
> Each ge_execd(8) may use a private mail agent. Changing xterm
> will take immediate effect.
> The default for xterm is /usr/bin/X11/xterm.
> The global configuration entry for this value may be
> overwritten by the execution host local configu-
But when I actually try adding "xterm /usr/bin/xterm" via the
command "qconf -me <hostname>" I get this error:
> error: unknown attribute name "xterm"
> error: error reading file: "/tmp/19531-llYYDD"
This is important to me because even though I have the xterm path
correct in the global config:
> $ qconf -sconf | grep xterm
> xterm /usr/bin/xterm
I still see the bad "/usr/bin/X11/xterm" path listed in the sge
qmaster logs when my "qsh" takes down an entire cluster queue due to
being marked into state 'E':
