Yup, it does. There's nothing in the standard that says it isn't
allowed to. Given the number of system/libc calls involved in doing
communication, pretty much every MPI function is going to change the
value of errno. If you expect otherwise, I'd modify your
application. Most cluster-based MPI implementations are going to
randomly change the errno on you.
