------------------------


With BDB RPC spooling and local qmaster_spool_dir combination is unforseen by the backup-restore procedure.

inst_sge -bup does not save the jobseqnum into the backup and silently succeeds, when started on BDB RPC server host! If started on qmaster
it can't safe the spooling database and fails.

inst_sge-rst has bigger problem. It needs to be started on BDB RPC server host otherwise it can't restore the spool database, but it also
attempts to create qmaster_spool_dir from the backup. Since it belong on the qmaster host (in case of local spooling), two thing can happen
it succeeds and we fails to start qmaster on the real qmaster host, or fails with permission denied.

Exists also in 6.1u6.
