Dear Paolo,
thanks for explaination.
But this behavior  is really strange i have ever come to.
i have tried to rebuild the mpich and the QE, and nothing is
gained.   Another strange problem is  that the work i execute  parallelly
with QE-v4  sometimes come to idle without execuation or output

is there any other suggestion to figure what the problem with it ?
