You'd probably see the same problem even if you strdup'ed the c_str()
and system()'ed that.
What kernel are you using? Does OMPI say that it has IBV fork support?
ompi_info --param btl openib --parsable | grep have_fork_support
Be sure to also see http://www.open-mpi.org/faq/?category=openfabrics#ofa-fork

It shouldn't; we proxy the launch of new commands off to mpirun /
OMPI's run-time system. Specifically: the new process(es) are not
POSIX children of the process(es) that called MPI_COMM_SPAWN.
