[Beowulf] MPI_Isend/Irecv failure for IB and large message sizes

I am running into problems when sending large messages (about
180000000 doubles) over IB. A fairly trivial example program is attached.

# mpicc -g sendrecv.c
# mpiexec -machinefile m2 -n 2 ./a.out
id=1: calling irecv ...
id=0: calling isend ...
[[60322,1],1][btl_openib_component.c:2951:handle_wc] from b1 to: b2 error polling LP CQ with status LOCAL LENGTH ERROR status number 1 for wr_id 199132400 opcode 549755813  vendor error 105 qp_idx 3

This is with OpenMPI-1.3.3.
Does anybody know a solution to this problem?

If I use MPI_Allreduce instead of MPI_Isend/Irecv, the program just hangs
and never returns.
I asked on the openmpi users list but got no response ...
