I was using a single buffer, which resulted in cases where the buffer content got replaced with received values before being able to send its original content. I think it was an error on my side to use a single buffer in a pipeline sendrecev. I fixed it by having two buffers.
That is correct: MPI_SENDRECV does not guarantee any ordering.

That is also correct. You could, however, use MPI_SENDRECV_REPLACE. It's not much more efficient than providing your own two buffers (i.e., OMPI will alloc a temporary receive buffer, and when the send is done, it'll copy from the temp to the send buffer).
