I am able to reproduce the skeleton&content errors fairly consistently
now, but I don't understand the mechanism enough to debug it. If you use
"-mca btl tcp,self" on the mpirun command line (running the test by hand),
the memory errors turn into test failures, at least for me. I think I
need Matthias to help with debugging the problems.
