Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Non-zero exit status

I could see if less then N processes exit with non-zero exit code that
the ORTE may choose not to abort the job. However, if all N processes
have exited or aborted I expect everything to clean up and mpirun to
exit. It does not do that at the moment which I think is what is
causing most of the hangs in the MTT trunk runs which did not occur
prior to this week.
