It would be interesting to compare running the program under pbsdsh to 
running it with Pete Wyckoff's "mpiexec" program using the -comm=none 
option (to stop it doing an MPI setup work).

i.e. replace:

pbsdsh /path/to/foo $ARGS


mpiexec -comm=none /path/to/foo $ARGS

I have a memory of Pete having to do some work around this in the last 
6 months or so (but then my memory does suffer from random bitrot, so 
it's always good to check..)
