Ralph and I took this off line.

I'm so far unable to reproduce the problem on a node of roadrunner,
which is 4 x86_64 cores, openmpi 1.3.2, and sm for transport. That
openmpi was built with some special platform files, not a configure run
without the platform files. Ralph sent me the platform files and I'm
about to build my own version on the small 8 core machine where the
problem first showed up.

I'll report more as soon as I know more. Hopefully in the morning.
