I think what's happening is that although you specified "0:0" or "0:1" in the rankfile, the string "0,0" or "0,1" is getting passed
in (at least in the runs I looked at). That colon became a comma. So, it's just by accident that myrankfile_0 is working out all

Could someone who knows the code better than I do help me narrow this down? E.g., where is the rankfile parsed? For what it's
worth, by the time mpirun reaches orte_odls_base_default_get_add_procs_data(), orte_job_data already contains the corrupted
cpu_bitmap string.
