Hi,

this problem is now solved!

The Sun Grid Engine 6.2 Update 2_1 (SGE 6.2u2_1) relase is now available on
Sunsolve:

  http://www.sun.com/software/sge/get_it.jsp

(don't get confused this page shows 6.2u2, the next page shows the correct
strings).

Next week we plan to make the courtesy binaries available.

Andy
