I need to do some other stuff, but might spend time on this later. For
now, I'll just observe that your sends are rendezvous sends. E.g., if
you decrease BUFLEN from 25000 to 2500 (namely, from over 4K to under
4K), the behavior should change (to what you'd expect). That may or may
not help you, but I think it's an important observation in reasoning
about this behavior.
