[torqueusers] pbs_submit - simplest scenario ?

Dear all,

We are trying to submit a job using PBS C API that is provided by Torque 
In the code we call pbs_connect followed by pbs_submit.

The second call returns NULL and thereafter pbs_errno is set to the 
following value:
         "PBSE_BADUSER 15023 Bad user - no password entry".

We call pbs_submit the following way:

pbs_submit(_connect, attrs, "/home/grabka/work/test.sh", NULL, NULL);

pbs_submit(_connect, attrs, "/home/grabka/work/test.sh", "", "");
(This way it did not work either.)

In attrs list there are nine attributes set i.e. "Checkpoint", "Hold_Types",
"Join_Path", "Keep_Files", "Mail_Points", "Priority", "Rerunable",
"Job_Name", "Resource_List.nodes". All of them are set to default 
values, except last two ("Job_Name", "Resource_List.nodes").

Can you tell us what we are missing?
Which attributes should we specify for job submission?

Thanks for any hint or clue,
