Comment 6 for bug 1774302

I have been grappling with this issue myself over the last couple of weeks and can confirm using the spooldefaults.bin, and from the Debian gridengine-client APT package, linked by christophprobst resolved the issue.

However, I have also been able to compile and install the gridengine client from the Debian source tarball for 8.1.9+dfsg-9 and haven't encountered any segfaults.
