Hello MPI Forum, Jeff
Well, the problem is not with incorrect arguments with MPI_Ssend(...) and/or MPI_Recv(...). I confirmed this. Also, if there were any obvious programming and logical errors, I would never have any successful run. In fact, I am having some runs which go through successfully.
The problem seems to be random, and therefore, I am finding it hard to debug. I am using Open MPI v. 1.4.3, on Linux kernel 126.96.36.199-0.7.
I am also using tags, in addition to normal sender node and receiver nodes. I am using integers for tags, and none of the tags are more than 1000. I am also running MPI_Ssends and MPI_Recv within pthreads, and I believe that it should be okay.
So, the question is, am I stumbling across a bug, or an incorrect MPI installation?
Thanks a lot.

Oh, they're blocked *forever*! Sorry; I didn't get that from your prior description -- I thought you just wanted non-blocking instead of blocking.

It doesn't matter if the receive is posted before the send or the other way around.
When blocking sends/receives block forever, it usually means that there's a mismatch in the communicator, tag, or src/dest arguments between the two.
