Notes on Integration of the SMU cluster (12/3/12)

Problem with boost threads. Any attempt to run on a single slot with the art executable dies with a boost exception when it attempts to spawn a thread for the message facility.

Can still run on the SMU cluster if the jobs are devoted a full machine slot.

There appears to be nothing in the environment that is handed to the jobs that differentiate the two cases (i.e. max threads/processes are the same)

We have tried to run with a job that uses just vanilla pthreads and this also shows the problem (the thread is not created and the eperms is return)
