Ah, that could do it. Open MPI's shared memory files are under /tmp. So if /tmp is NFS, you could get extremely high latencies because of dirty page writes out through NFS.
You don't necessarily have to make /tmp disk-full -- if you just make OMPI's session directories go into a ramdisk instead of to NFS, that should also be sufficient.
