[Mun] Yes, I do use -V normally.  When I once again get to a point where qrsh is able to launch I will certain try your suggestion.  But I may tweak it by simply "unset'ing" DISPLAY from the wrapper script rather than using -v because we have many env vars that are required in order to correctly run a job.
