Shame on the developers of the atmospheric code for not using
MPI_Comm_{f2c,c2f} in the first place ;).

Could you generate a stack trace from a core file? It would be good
to verify that this is the startup bug we are seeing with FC4 and not
another bug somewhere else. Or, I think you are using a recent
enough version of Open MPI that you should see a stack trace printed
when a SIGSEGV or SIGBUS occurs. Finally, could you let me know what
options you passed to configure and send the config.out file
generated by configure (this is probably unrelated to the error with
sm, but I'm curious why you ended up with the malloc_hooks component
-- it shouldn't be automatically chosen in any circumstance).
