Yup, you guessed right. The easiest solution is to compile Open MPI
without the memory manager code. This disables some optimizations
for InfiniBand (OpenFabrics and MVAPI) and Myrinet/GM, but for other
networks has no impact. YOu can disable the memory manager with the
--without-memory-manager option to configure.
Hope this helps,
