OMPI got that IP address from somewhere; probably by a name resolution
of the name "W71c-140644"...?

It does seem odd that your hostname is listed twice in /etc/hosts for
two different IP addresses. One looks like it's supposed to be a
localhost kind of address and the other doesn't seem to resolve to an
IP address that is configured on that host (i.e., both eth0 and eth1
don't have that IP address). This is at least likely to be part of
the problem.

It seems like there's some wonkyness in your IP addressing setup on
that host; you might want to double check that all your networking
setup is correct. Check things like:

- /etc/hosts
- what IP addresses you want the machine to be
- what the hostname is
- what /etc/nsswitch.conf contains
- what DNS and gethostbyname() returns for the name that is returned
by the "hostname" command
