This is exactly the right question: apparently it does not.
Specifically, it looks like we have a bad configure test in the
"posix" paffinity component which triggers it to not be built. Hence,
OMPI *always* thinks there's only 1 processor.
The setup for how to get the number of processors was totally changed
between the 1.2 and 1.3 series. I think that this completely explains
the issue (OMPI didn't have a paffinity component, so it assumed 1
processor, then it saw that there were 2 processes running, and
therefore decided that it was running in oversubscribed mode).
I'll fix. I don't know if it'll make the cut for 1.3.2 or not.
