No, not intentional at all. Instead, you have the honor of the first
reported bug in Open MPI v1.0 ;). Unfortunately, OMPI_UNIQ is pretty
nasty, so it is going to take a little while to work out a patch for
fixing this. In the mean time, I believe that doing something like:

     --with-wrapper-ldflags="-Wl,-rpath,pathA -Wl,-rpath,pathB"

will do essentially the same thing and get you past the OMPI_UNIQ
bug. I believe (again, could be wrong) that most compilers will
parse that into the correct number of options to pass to the linker.

Hope this helps,
