[IPython-dev] Problems with ipcluster and LSF protocol (v.0.13.2)

Dear IPython Users,

I am trying to start engines on a big cluster, which uses the Load 
Sharing Facility protocol. The engines seem to start correctly:

    *[wagnerfl at brutus1 ~]$ ipcluster start --profile=cluster
    --engines=LSF --n=4 --IPClusterApp.log_level=DEBUG*
    2013-07-30 11:55:31,893.893 [IPClusterStart] Using existing profile
    dir: u'/cluster/home02/erdw/wagnerfl/.ipython/profile_cluster'

    2013-07-30 11:56:03.200 [IPClusterStart] Engines appear to have
    started successfully

However, I cannot access them from the Client.

    In [1]: from IPython.parallel import Client
    In [2]: c = Client(profile='cluster')
    In [3]: c.ids
    Out[3]: []

Could you give me a hint how to debug this, or is it not worth trying 
and should I better wait for 1.0?

Thanks a lot in advance
