[torqueusers] Open MPI Torque Errors

Thanks for your help, you are right it was a Torque config issue.

It ended up being an environment variable issue with torque not being 
able to find /bin/bash.

qsub -S /bin/sh -l nodes=2 script

Solved the problem.

Which leads me to another question.

If I were to use cshell would I need to define all environment variables
at submit time in a job submission script?  Or could I compile torque
./configure --with-environpath=PATH to alleviate the issue?

Look at the errors for the simple case and fix that first.
