Thanks Steve.

It has exposed an oddity in OpenMPI though, whereas
both the OSC mpiexec and pbsdsh do TM requests for
each vnode separately OpenMPI appears to make one TM
request *per node*, and then fork the tasks on that node.

This means that with cpusets working all the OpenMPI
processes for a job on a node end up locked to the
same core! :-(
