[GE users] SGE 6.2-u2_1 qmaster segfault

Hello Everyone,

I am wondering if this issue is something unique to my installation,
or if someone else has seen something similar.

I am running SGE 6.2-u2_1 on Gentoo Linux hosts using kernel
2.6.27-r6. I am regularly seeing sge_qmaster segfault. I have been
trying to chase down this issue, but haven't had much luck.

It seems like qmaster segfaults when some jobs exit, almost as if
sge_shepherd is sending back bad responses. I have turned on
debugging, and haven't seen anything out of the ordinary, simply a
segfault at the end. I have tried strace'ing the application, again
just getting a segfault at the end.

Today I have come across the qping application, and I am getting a
"warning" output:
