Hi Jesse,

Thanks very much for your reply.
See my inline comments below.

*​[Mun] Yikes!  Here are my results:*

*shell                 /bin/csh*
*shell_start_mode      posix_compliant*

*Okay, I'm new to grid config; so does the above imply that the CSH startup
file will be automatically read (if found) for every qsub job?*

*​[Mun] Yes (if I understand correctly).  That is, I don't want the shell
startup file(s) to be read re​gardless of the configured shell for the
queue.  I want qsub to leverage the calling env's variables (thus, I use
'qsub -V').  Is that possible?*

*Thanks again for the informative reply, Jesse.*
