The user file seems to add to the existing command line, ie including the
stuff from the system-wide definitions.
If you trace, eg do an strace of, the qstat invocation with both defiinitions
active, you'll see that both the -u * and -u $USER are being processed.
I think you may be approaching this in a slightly suboptimal way though,
involving two changes, the system-wide define and the user-education
define, when one "change" would suffice.
Why set a system-wide default that you think may want to be overridden
and so requires you to ALSO have to tell your users about the ~/.sge_qstat
If you are going to have to tell them about ~/.sge_qstat anyway, why not tell
them how to add the "-u *" to their own file (or equivalent to their command
line qstat) so that they get to choose not to have the Grid Engine default in
favour of "-u *" listing.
Other system-level canges would be to give each user a ~./sge_qstat
or create a shell alias, say qstat_all, to hold the the default args you
want - either way allows the user to customise things for themselves.
Just my thre'pen'th though.
