I wrap the shepherd program in a script that spawns the normal sge  
shepherd in a pag shell running with k5start. (I am migrating from  
k5start over to an inhouse modified version that has a single daemon  
to manage all running jobs and such, including login shells through  
pam and such.) This uses an AFS principal called <username>/batch  
that is given access everywhere that the user needs access. It seems  
to work really well and it handles long jobs that run for months on  
end. It also required very little modification to SGE to get it  
working =)
