I execute my test on the svn/trunk below

                Open MPI: 1.4a1r19677
   Open MPI SVN revision: r19677
   Open MPI release date: Unreleased developer copy
                Open RTE: 1.4a1r19677

            Ident string: 1.4a1r19677
 
below is the output which seems to freeze just after the second spawn.
