Oops -- looks like a typo in the man page. The real flag is "-wdir".

Let me see how we want to fix that: I'm not sure if there's an OMPI
member who wants to have "-wd" for backward compatibility. I'm
guessing that we'll either:

1. s/-wd/-wdir/g in the man page
2. Add the flag "-wd" which will be a synonym for "-wdir"

Thanks for bringing it to our attention!
