Wow. I thought in the first place that all combinations would be equivalent, but in fact, this is not the case...
I've kept the firewalls down during all the tests.

Blocks after "Process 0 sent to 1".

> - on node1, "mpirun --host node1,node2,node3 ring_c"
"Process 0 sending 10 to 1, tag 201 (3 processes in ring)
Process 0 sent to 1
Process 0 decremented value: 9" then blocks

> Repeat all 4 from node2.
On node 2 :
- "mpirun --host node2,node1 ring_c" : OK
- "mpirun --host node2,node3 ring_c" : blocks at same point that above.
- "mpirun --host node1,node3 ring_c" : blocks at same point that above.
- "mpirun --host node1,node2,node3 ring_c" : blocks at same point that mentioned above in case of 3 hosts.

I recompiled this test program with MPICH2 and have the exactly same issues at the same time.
There is really something wrong with that network...
