Actually, it might: in my testing of some of your CUDA code, running two
instances at once (without MPI, though) provided slightly better
combined performance, probably due to inefficiencies/stalls in the code.
So "mpiexec -np 2" might make sense in some special cases.

I see that this is now uploaded - thanks!  However, interdiff'ing the
patches I don't see what bug you're referring to, and I don't see
anything relevant to loading of MSCash hashes (something that would
cause them to be loaded where they previously were not).

Can you please clarify?
