no. qsh is a special tool, which will just start an xterm on the node  
(in detail: the defined program in SGE's configuration under "xterm")  
- nothing more, especially nothing on the submit machine:


For now best to use is "qrsh xterm" with enabled ssh's X11  
forwarding. Maybe the "builtin" method for starting jobs will be  
enhanced to provide this facility at a later point in time, as there  
are several requests for it.
