>>> With that said, would you mind running the following test?
>>> 1. download this job script: http://gist.github.com/485618
>>> 2. run ipcontroller manually in a separate shell
>>> 3. chmod +x the script and then bsub it the "executable" way (bsub -i
>>> infile -o outfile -e errfile testscript.sh)
>>> 4. check the output/error files for errors. you can also use the job's
>>> id to tail it's output (bpeek -J jobid -f) and look at its history
>>> info (bhist jobid)
>>> 5. run ipython, obtain a mec and see how many ids you get (gist should
>>> request 4)
>>> 6. re-run 1-5 and use the "redirection" way (bsub < testscript.sh)
>>> If the redirection approach works and it's possible to do this with

bsub testscript.sh didn't manage to launch a single engine. It more or
less launched a bash and waited.
bsub < testscript.sh worked very well, as I suspected it would ;)
