[gridengine users] SGE-6.2u5: "execd went down during job start"

Good day gridengine users,

it seems that the issue has been solved - in the end it was only
necessary to start "sge_execd" after "nscd".  I still don't quite
understand why the execd dies only when the first job is started
and not directly after startup.  By that time the nscd has already
been running for a while.  It shouldn't die at all anyway though.
