Consider also grabbing the dist graph and neighborhood collective tests from MPICH and running them against your proposed patch. I recall catching a lot of subtle cases with these tests when I implemented this functionality in MPICH. Specifically, I'm thinking of these tests:

Some of them might be annoying to run, since they depend on the "MTest" utility code. But they wouldn't be too hard to tweak to use plain MPI instead. Let me know if you run into trouble, I'm happy to point you in the right direction.
