I just checked the source.
The split of the start:end range over MPI nodes happens
after all the other computations (convert % into real values, replace
end=0 with real end, ...) are finished.

I also made sure that the
fprintf(stderr, "End: %s converted to "LLd"\n", end_token, mkv_end);
happens only for mpi_id == 0 (if HAVE_MPI is defined).

So, MPI should work just fine.
