MPI on linux Exit status=1

I'm trying to help our local grid computing guys to get NONMEM running
with MPI on a Linux based grid.

We have NONMEM running with a pnm file asking for 8 nodes but the actual
run time is 10% longer than with a regular 'transfer' run. The only clue
I can see to the problem is the "Exit status=1" after the "MPI TRANSFER
TYPE SELECTED" message. The NONMEM runs appears to execute OK except for
no evidence that MPI is operating. Can anybody tell me if this exit
status is normal under Linux? If not what might it mean?
