The problem is that i don't really remember what fixed my problem (or if
it got interrupted before i managed to fix it in the first place).
I have been busy building other software for a couple of weeks.
The above was simply the only patch i hade made that i didn't know
exactly what it was doing.

But judging from trying to run that version of ompi_info i still have
problems.

I've been working with this for a while and can hopefully continue
pursuing it next week or so.
