Hello everyone,

I have been having trouble calculating phonons in 4.3. On a
central-disk machine things work fine, but for a distributed cluster
with local scratch disks the phonon temp files are not spread
correctly over the nodes. Apparently only the mother node has the
correct files written (including all instances on that node). Has
anyone encountered this, and has it been fixed in the development
version? Is there some input variable I am ignoring? The same input
files were working for qe 4.2.1
