This happens all the time with shared memory enabled mpich (drives me  
nuts)  ether move to a MPI library that cleans up nicly when a app  
dies, (we use OpenMPI but many others work).

The other option is do disable shared memory, its off by default you  
had to enable it when you configured mpich.

Last to fix the problem you need to run 'cleanipcs'  on all the nodes  
ether as the user who owns the sem segments, or as root which will  
wack them all,  this will kill any running job that is using any of  
those segments though.
