Have to check with the user. I can't create this error on my machine. It 
was something like "BadValue (integer parameter out of range for

I checked qrsh env and did not see any significant differences. (Just 
Job_ID, TMP and the like.)

Users machine ===> ssh ===> login node ===> ssh (through qrsh) ===> exec

There are different queues defined but they only differ in that one is 
BATCH and INTERACTIVE and the other is only INTERACTIVE.
And the slot count is different.
(I diffed the qconf -sq <queuename> output)

Since this is the only user reporting such a problem and since we found 
a workaround I will probably keep it like it is and regards this into 
the field of "computer mystery".
