Comment (by knarf):

 One problem with system() is that this seems to break several MPI
 implementations. We (still) have problems with this on QueenBee (because
 it is so old), and OpenMPI also has / can have problems with system()
 calls: it makes the code hang. I had to switch back from using OpenMPI to
 Mpich2 because of this.


 The suggested `ompi_info --param btl openib --parsable | grep
 have_fork_support:value | cut -d: -f7`
 does not work for me, as Cactus simulations using openmpi still hang after
 system(), while the same compiled against mpich2 work.
