We are planning to comment out the else of this again, but before we do 
we want to make sure we are all in agreement why doing a -t create in an 
init.d script is problematic. There are also some problems we see in the 
script itself.

PBS_HOME is a hard coded path and does not take into account that the 
user may have used --with-server-home and set the server location to 
somewhere else besides /var/spool/torque. If the user does set the 
server home directory to somewhere besides the default then the check 
"if [ -r $PBS_HOME/server_priv/serverdb ]" will always fail and the -t 
create will always be called, wiping out the users database each time 
they restart.

I'm sure the case could be made to use the -t create at init time but 
there should be a warning that you are about to wipe out your 
configuration. However, the safer place to initialize the database is 
with torque.setup during installation.
