Subject: [OMPI devel] MPIEXEC_TIMEOUT broken in v1.7 branch @ r31103

I'm seeing problems with MPIEXEC_TIMEOUT in v1.7 @ r31103 (fairly close to HEAD):

MPIEXEC_TIMEOUT=8 mpirun --mca btl usnic,sm,self -np 4 ./sleeper
The user-provided time limit for job execution has been

  MPIEXEC_TIMEOUT: 8 seconds

The job will now be aborted. Please check your code and/or
adjust/remove the job execution time limit (as specified
by MPIEXEC_TIMEOUT in your environment).

srun: error: mpi015: task 0: Killed
srun: Terminating job step 689585.2
srun: Job step aborted: Waiting up to 2 seconds for job step to finish.

^CAbort is in progress...hit ctrl-c again within 5 seconds to forcibly terminate


Where each of the "^C" is a ctrl-c with arbitrary was allowed to pass beforehand (several minutes for the first two, <5s in the third).

Where "sleeper" is just an MPI program that does:

    MPI_Init(&argc, &argv);
    MPI_Comm_rank(MPI_COMM_WORLD, &wrank);
    MPI_Comm_size(MPI_COMM_WORLD, &wsize);

    while (1) {


It happens under slurm and SSH. If I launch on localhost (no --host/--hostfile option, no slurm, etc.) then it exits just fine. The example output I gave above used the "usnic" BTL, but "tcp" has identical behavior.

This worked fine in v1.7.4. I've bisected the change in behavior down to r30981:

Should I file a ticket?
