That's surprising, the 2.6.2 release didn't include any changes to
the servers from 2.6.1. Did you get any messages in the server logs
on the nodes that died?

There aren't any other significant fixes in 2.6.2 besides support for
the latest Berkeley DB release, and the misc-bug patch that you
mention, so using 2.6.1 shouldn't be a problem for you. That being
said, if the servers crash for you on 2.6.2, its likely that they
will do so with 2.6.1 and you just haven't hit it yet. I'd also like
to figure out exactly what is causing the servers to crash. Can you
send your MPI-IO program to us?
