Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Restarting from a checkpoint (OMPI 1.3)
From: Josh Hursey (jjhursey_at_[hidden])

Thanks for the bug report. I saw a problem similar to this a few
months ago (documented in the ticket below).
Though we fixed the accounting information, the patch I had for orte-
restart to switch it away from using --hostfile and instead using --
default-hostfile was never applied to the trunk (my fault here). The
patch is attached if you want to apply it to make sure it fixes the
problem for you.

I have committed the patch to the development trunk (r20305), and
asked that it be brought over to the v1.3 branch so it will be
included in the v1.3.1 release. If you want to track its progress you
can using the ticket below.

Thanks again,
