Bug reports about MPICH should be sent to mpi-maint at mcs.anl.gov.
To answer your question, this means that MPICH received an error return
when attempting to use a semaphore. This could be because the pool of
available semaphores has been exhausted; you can try the command
mpich/sbin/cleanipcs to free them. You should also update to the most
recent version of MPICH, 126.96.36.199 .
