Wow - that's an ancient one. I'll see if it can be applied to 1.8.1. These things don't automatically go across - it requires that someone file a request to move it - and I think this commit came into the trunk after we branched for the 1.7 series.

I'm not sure I ever replied to this to say that the patch works perfectly (very belatedly)!

However I just wanted to ask what the progress of getting this into a released version is? I'm not particularly sure on the details on the OpenMPI development process - I've noticed that it's still in the SVN trunk, but hasn't made it into any of the intervening releases (neither stables 1.6.2-, 1.8; nor feature releases 1.7 onwards). Will this end up in the 1.9 series?

Thanks George, I'm glad it wasn't just me being crazy. I'll try and test that one soon.

Thanks for identifying this issue and for the short example. I can confirm your original understanding was right, the upper bound should be identical on all ranks. I just pushed a patch (r26862), let me know if this fixes your issue.
