[Glass] GEMSTONE_EXE_CONF higher priority than topaz -e argument ?

Another bug bites the dust:)

After working with Mariano off-line, it turns out that what happened here
is that when Mariano fired of the `topaz -l -e` job using the following

  cat << EOF | nohup $GEMSTONE/bin/topaz -l -e $4 -I
$APPLICATION_DIR/.topazini 2>&1 >>
$APPLICATION_LOG_DIR/${1}_server-${2}.log &

That the $APPLICATION_DIR/.topazini had a `set gemnetid` statement in it
and the `set gemnetid` turns a linked topaz session (which honors the conf
file specified by -e flag) into a an RPC session that spawns a separate gem
process that does not honor the -e flag ...

I've submitted an internal bug (BUG 44664) to throw a warning or error when
using a `set gemnetid` statement with a topaz session started with a -l ...
