OK, good to have that clarified Jeff, cheers.

Very likley to be hardware on the node end.

Have a hardware support call open and have just been and swapped
everything over - ports, cable, even my socks - but a visible
problem (one link operating at 1x width and not 4x persists).

Probably not a problem with the OpenMPI stack though it has
highlighted the error message issue (My external MSc supervisor
said the project raised more questions than it answered, so I
guess I am continuing the trend, many years on, in a new field!)

Thanks to all who commented,
