If you are looking for the path of least resistance, then going back to
MPICH is probably your best bet (there is certainly merit in "it ain't
broke, so don't fix it").

However, there may be a few other factors to consider:

- Just because an app runs and completes with one MPI implementation
does not mean that the application is correct; running with a different
implementation can be a great way to find bugs that you were unaware of

- Open MPI is under continual development. The latest officially
released stable version of Open MPI is v1.0.2. There are also
post-1.0.2 snapshots (what will eventually become 1.0.3).

Hope this helps.
