Great! I saw there was another MPICH2 release, and I saw a ROMIO patch or three go by on the MPICH list recently. Do you expect there to be major differences between what you have and those changes?

I don't have any parallel filesystems to test with, but if someone else in the community could confirm/verify at least one or two of the parallel filesystems supported in ROMIO, I think we should bring this stuff into the trunk soon.

Did this patch get pushed upstream?

Do you mean that we should be returning an error string "**iobaddisp" instead of "MPI_ERR_ARG"?
