Are you able to run the MPI example programs in examples/ ?

I first noticed this problem when my application hanged if I tried to send two successive messages from a process to another. Only the first MPI_Send would work. The second MPI_Send would block indefinitely. I was wondering whether any of you have encountered a similar problem, or may have an ideea as to what is causing the Send/Receive pair to block when using SLURM. The exact output in my console is as follows:

I'm not sure what SLURM version that is -- my "srun --version" shows 2.2.4. 0.3.3 would be pretty ancient, no?
