I have been testing some code against openmpi lately that always causes it to crash during certain mpi function calls. The code does not seem to be the problem, as it runs just fine against mpich. I have tested it against openmpi 1.2.5, 1.2.6, and 1.2.7 and they all exhibit the same problem. Also, the problem only occurs in openmpi when running more than 16 processes. I have posted this stack trace to the list before, but I am submitting it now as a potential bug report. I need some help debugging it and finding out exactly what is going on in openmpi when the segfault occurs. Are there any suggestions on how best to do this? Is there an easy way to attach gdb to one of the processes or something?? I have already compiled openmpi with debugging, memory profiling, etc. How can I best take advantage of these features?
