Running OpenFOAM-1.7.0 on a grid (XtreemOS)

I am trying to run simple OpenFOAM applications on a grid running XtreemOS.

When I try to run a simple 'blockMesh' executable on the remote machine (grid) , following error occurs:

word::stripInvalid() called for word CN=5a631e00-2cdb-4b59-861f-4580f7e05fe2
For debug level (= 2) > 1 this is considered fatal
/tmp/openfoam-test/runOpenFoam: line 23: 16241 Aborted blockMesh

"CN=5a631e00-2cdb-4b59-861f-4580f7e05fe2" is actually the grid-userId on the Grid.

I am wondering as in whyis OpenFOAM interacting with userId on the remote machine?.

I also tried creating a .OpenFOAM-1.7.0/ in the home directory of grid-user, containing the controlDict and other settings-specific files. But it didn't help.

Any help would be greatly apppreciated.
