    Oy, yes, this might be a problem.
    
    -ton tells the MPI processes to dump trace information down to the LAM 
    daemons.  When the MPI processes restart, I can see how the trace 
    information would not be associated with them anymore.
    
    I'll check this out over the weekend and see if that works.  I kinda 
    doubt it.  I'll reply to the guy (and checkpoint@lbl) with what I find.
    
    Why do people keep sending LAM questions to you guys?  Is there some 
    web page that is not clear about who to send checkpoint vs. LAM 
    questions?
