I just recently got hold of that code and I don't even have any 
documentation at all. Is there any? How did you use -fork?

BTW I have seen an MPI problem with j5c4 (neither using -fork nor -node, 
just -inc mode under MPI) but I've had no time to look into it. I got 
"Unexpected count: x != y" error. I guess the -node option and MPI 
should be unified and use the same code in most places. This will help 
debugging MPI a lot too.
