[torqueusers] Question about the difference between a node where pbs_server is run and a compute node

  We just installed version 2.4.7 and experiencing some serious problems 
with executing programs on the server. I noticed that the server
is using '/tmp/.torque-unix' and the clients 'pbs_iff'.

The following test on the pbs_server node will completely hang pbs_server. 
Here some pseudo code:
   p = pbs_connect( pbs_default() )

After this we can not do anythinng on all compute nodes and server:
    - qstat, qsub, .....

On a compute node this no problem at all. So i except the /tmp/.torque-unix 
is causing the problem.

Is this a known problem or a bug?
