It's looking like it's a universal problem... I am surprised that there
is no mention of it on the mpich web page. LAM can work for some of our
users but as far as I know LAM does not support the spawning of multiple
jobs by the same user from a single machine. Our clusters have front
end systems which support job runs on several subclusters and it is
quite common for users to want to start up more than one job on multiple
subclusters. I guess I will try submitting a bug report to the mpich
people and see what happens...
