yes... but you admit that until this release, the problem
was present and discussed here about two months ago.
If you are using our latest release, -8, mpich

I am glad to learn it, this had escaped my attention.
We are indeed using -7 release, since it takes
some time to come from linuxcentral to here on CD...
and since you are a commercial company and
only release on the FTP site (again from what I know) a large
bunch of source packages : I estimated that the whole compilation
and installation time was too high and decided to keep
with -7 until the -8 is available on LinuxCentral.
