If the qrsh startup fails, it's likely to put the queue into an error
state.  This at least partly sounds consistent with the startup dying on
the execution host.  What OS, GE version, and remote startup method is
this with?  There appear to be system-dependent issues with
multi-threading in qrsh startup, though I'm not sure whether it's
getting that far in this case.

Those are potentially different things.

I'm confused by the symptoms.  What does losing the handle over it mean
exactly, if it's queued?
