Subject: Re: [OMPI users] MPI_Bcast not broadcast to all processes

If you're seeing the same error from 2 entirely different MPI
implementations, it is possible that it is an error in your code.

Ensure that all processes are calling MPI_Bcast with the same
arguments (e.g., count, datatype, root, etc.), even on that 4000th

How big are the blocks that you are sending around?
