Sorry for not replying earlier. 
It is likely that Open MPI won't work properly in this situation -- Open MPI provides basic I/O forwarding.  I don't know if curses-based or readline-based applications will work through our forwarding.
Do you know if this application works with other MPI implementations?

Subject: [OMPI users] readline and mpirun

When I run my MPI enabled application via mpirun, my application command-prompt looses its readline editing capability. I was wondering if there is workaround.
