I think it *could*, but it's really an OS-level question. OMPI is
simply reporting what errno is giving us back from a failed TCP
connect() API call.

The timeout shown in the error message above is really an ORTE
timeout, meaning that we waited for a daemon to start that didn't, so
we timed out and gave up. It's on the "to do" list to recognize
quicker that an ssh failed (or any of the other starters failed --
SLURM/srun failures behaves similarly to ssh failures right now)
faster than a timeout, probably not until at least the 1.3 timeframe,
