Had a quick test here (we're still on 1.4.2 as our default).

It now complains that $TMPDIR points to our Panasas filesystem,
and there's a minor typo in its message, saying:

# Note, too, that system administrators can set a list of filesystems
# where Open MPI is disallowed from creating temporary files by settings
# the MCA parameter "orte_no_session_dir".

I think you want s/settings/setting/ there.

Also I can not seem to make it accept the orte_no_session_dir settings,
neither:

mpirun -mca orte_no_session_dir /vlsci ./hello_c

nor:

mpirun -mca orte_no_session_dir /vlsci/tmp ./hello_c

nor:

$ export OMPI_MCA_orte_no_session_dir=/vlsci

nor:

export OMPI_MCA_orte_no_session_dir=/vlsci/tmp

prevent it whinging about (for example):

Local host: bruce001
File Name: /vlsci/tmp/979325.bruce-m.vlsci.unimelb.edu.au/openmpi-sessions-samuel_at_bruce001_0/14488/1/shared_mem_pool.bruce001

Is there a way to tell it to use /tmp without changing what
$TMPDIR is set to ?

cheers,
Chris
