[mpich-discuss] Error when running

The problem seems to be that the proxy is created, but it is providing
an ID which is outside the expected range.  The likely problem here is
that you are running this on a combination of 32-bit and 64-bit
machines, in which case mpiexec would get very confused.  Is this the case?
