Using the "-V" and "-jsv" features at the same time causes the lx24-x86 version of qsub to segfault. Can kill the scheduler if qsub passes
"-V" on a 32-bit platform and a server-side JSV is active.

To reproduce, download the courtesy GE 6.2u3 binaries from Sun for both lx24-x86 and lx24-amd64 platforms.

* 64-bit seems to work:

$ /scratch/ge6.2u3/bin/lx24-amd64/qsub -V test.sh
Your job 10 ("test.sh") has been submitted
$ /scratch/ge6.2u3/bin/lx24-amd64/qsub -jsv ./test_pl.jsv test.sh
Your job 11 ("test.sh") has been submitted
$ /scratch/ge6.2u3/bin/lx24-amd64/qsub -V -jsv ./test_pl.jsv test.sh
Your job 12 ("test.sh") has been submitted

* 32-bit doesn't:

$ /scratch/ge6.2u3/bin/lx24-x86/qsub -V test.sh
Your job 13 ("test.sh") has been submitted
$ /scratch/ge6.2u3/bin/lx24-x86/qsub -jsv ./test_pl.jsv test.sh
Your job 14 ("test.sh") has been submitted
$ /scratch/ge6.2u3/bin/lx24-x86/qsub -V -jsv ./test_pl.jsv test.sh
