Thanks Reuti and Dave,

"issue 3296" looks different to me as we don't have any "~" as parameters
nor do we get the described error message.

System details:
Linux XXXXXXXXX #1 SMP 2010-05-20 11:14:20 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
Intel Xeon x5680 3.33GHz

Submit details (normal submission with qsub):
#$ -S /bin/sh
#$ -q standard
#$ -m as
#$ -pe openmpi* 24-32
#$ -l lcfx_p=1,lcfx_s=0
#$ -p -100
#$ -o SGE.out
#$ -e SGE.err
#$ -cwd

Many thanks, Erik Soyez.

@Dave: All the best for your wrist, the typing looks fine to me....
