Not really. We have written a shared library _espresso.so, which is a
Python module that is loaded by Python, which in turn dynamically loads
libmpi.so - but only on the C++ level. Python itself never sees libmpi.so.

That is not really under my control, as the library is opened by Python.

I still wonder, why everything worked fine in 1.2.x, while in OpenMPI
1.3 it doesn't. Has anything changed between these versions that could
influence the behaviour?
