 This is a warning from ssh, not from OpenMPI; probably it is the first
time the system tries to connect to itself, and is asking you a
confirmation to continue.

 Please note that seems quite strange to me, since the
'standard' ip for localhost is ''. You may want to check your
/etc/hosts .

 I'm afraid it wasn't a great idea... the ssh daemon is required to
receive connections to localhost; and since mpi wants to do just that,
stopping sshd won't really fix the issue ;)
