I wondered about that as well. Is there any chance that you simply
weren't using the one-sided MPI functionality between your different

Or are you using the same version of your software with v1.2.3 and
v1.2.4 of OMPI? If so, I'm kinda at a loss. :-(

FWIW: our one-sided support loads lazily; it doesn't load during
MPI_INIT like most of the rest of the plugins that we have. Since
not many MPI applications use it, we decided to make it only load the
osc plugins the first time an MPI window is created.
