Okay, you should have it in r24929. Use:

orte-ps --parseable

to get the new output.

The jobid consists of two fields: a 16-bit number indicating the mpirun, and a 16-bit number indicating the job within that mpirun. Unfortunately, orte-ps sends a data request to every mpirun out there instead of only to the one corresponding to that jobid.
