apparently, since the prolog script runs as root, the execd does not
allow `qrsh -inherit`:

    |W|denied request of user "root" to start a pe task in job of user "murri"

I probably misread your suggestion: I was talking about the job
prolog, which at our site runs as root, whereas you adviced me to use
the PE start-up procedure (`start_proc_args` in `qconf -sp`)?
