printing the result of


does give the value of 64

I reckon I had an error in my debug code, I was truncating the output
format, that explains why I'm chasing a gambuzino with this point.

hmmm... I downloaded the tarball of 1.6, cd to the openmpi-1.6 directory
and tried to apply the patch with

patch < /home/rreis/fortran-file-int-cast-fix.diff

but the result was

rreis_at_galego: /opt/build/openmpi-1.6
5044.0 $ patch -p1 < /home/rreis/fortran-file-int-cast-fix.diff
patching file mpi/f77/file_get_view_f.c

so I'm probably doing something wrong here?
