What thread level are you invoking MPI_INIT_THREAD with?

One possible reason this could be happening is that the openib BTL is excluding itself if you use MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE. The openib BTL is the entity that is responsible for the fork warning -- if it's not being used, then no warning is issued because there is no problem with forking.
