hello,

yesterday i was able to submit jobs with qsub or with qrsh without problems,
everything worked fine.
now all my jobs just appear pending when i check them with qstat -f. this
happened after shutdown/power on
also running jobs list is empty, so its weird.

for example if i run

ijorge:/ cristobal$ qrsh -verbose -q all.q hostname
Your job 38 ("hostname") has been submitted
waiting for interactive job to be scheduled ...

Your "qrsh" request could not be scheduled, try again later.

this is a test cluster that i have, so i only have 1 node with qmaster and
exec in the same machine. i repeat that this was working yesterday, no
update was installed, shut shutdown the mac.
i noticed that now the qmaster daemon and execd daemon do not start as
"root" can that be the problem and how i fix it?
