I think the problem is not that qsub uses rsh rather
than ssh, but that the authentication uses ruserok(3).

Extract from src/lib/Libsite/site_check_u.c :

 * site_check_u - site_check_user_map()
 *      This routine determines if a user is privileged to execute a job
 *      on this host under the login name specified (in user-list
 *      As provided, this routine uses ruserok(3N).  If this is a
 *      It's replacement is "left as an exercise for the reader."
 *      Return -1 for access denied, otherwise 0 for ok.

||Don't know why, and this is really just a work-around I guess, but

|torque depends heavily on either rsh or ssh, so this is a 
|requirement for rsh users, AFAICT.
