Are you running SELinux on the nodes?

Normal qsub is working?

It's not run from inetd:

sgeadmin root     /usr/sge/bin/lx24-x86/sge_execd
sgeadmin root      \_ sge_shepherd-409 -bg
root     root          \_ sshd: reuti [priv]
reuti    reuti             \_ sshd: reuti at pts/0
reuti    reuti                 \_ -bash
reuti    reuti                     \_ ps -e f -o user,ruser,command
