I have some code that fixes most of the issues here.  I've been able to
checkpoint and restart openMPI jobs using qhold and qrls.

The bugzilla bug that you filed is still causing me problems:

Did you ever work out a fix for this?

If you're interested in doing some testing, I can send you the code.  It's
still in rough shape, but I could use more eyes on this.
