No, I'm sure I'm using a different version of Open MPI in Fedora
18 from the one I was using in Fedora 17.

I have only the Open MPI provided by the Fedora distribution.

Fedora allows both Open MPI and MPICH to be installed at the same
time by using the module system.

Neither is in the default path, I have to put them in my path with :

  module load mpi/openmpi-x86_64

which is in my ~/.bashrc .

'locate mpicc' and 'locate mpirun' only find one hit each so I'm
reasonably sure I'm running what I think I'm running.

That being said packaging bugs have happened before is there any
library, config file, or executable that you would suggest I look
for that might have come from a prior version of Open MPI or its
