    That error looks like the error when job wasn't started with "-am
    ft-enable-cr" passed to MPI run. Given that the output you pasted
    shows "-am ft-enable-cr" was present this would lead me to suspect
    that something went wrong during the startup of mpirun. Do you have
    logs of std{out,err} from this at all. IIRC if checkpointing setup
    fails in OpenMPI at startup for some reason a few messages get printed
    and things just carry on regardless. Is there anything helpful in a
    verbose/debug output too?

    I've never used SGE, only Condor, and I've never done MPI+BLCR+Condor
    so I can't really help there I'm afraid. Is it possible SGE is making
    mpi use a transport other than sm, tcp or self? I'm not sure if the
    checkpointing code works with other transports.

    I think mpirun --tmpdir might help with this one?
