When I tried to install the beta on a host, the
procedure failed during the "Checking hostname
resolving" phase.  After failing, it prints "The
error message was:" and then the usage message
from qconf.

Trying to trace this a little, I came across this
code in CheckHostNameResolving() in

      $SGE_BIN/qconf -sh > /dev/null 2>&1
      if [ $? = 1 ]; then
         errmsg=`$SGE_BIN/qconf 2>&1`
         errmsg=`$SGE_BIN/qconf -sh 2>&1 |  grep

Here first qconf is run with the "-sh" flag.  Then
 when it fails, it is run again, in order to
capture the error message.  But if the exit code
was 1, it is run without the -sh flag, which seems
like the bug.  Ran in this way it does give the
usage message, but it is not the error message it
got (and discarded) in the first attempt.

Call "qconf -sh" in case of error.

I've now verified the fix in beta 2.  (Am I, as a reporter, supposed
to do this step?  Should I be the one closing too/instead?)
