Default MPI error with IBM XL compiler in the mesh constructor

Dear all, I compiled on an IBM machine OpenFOAM with XL compilers (only the rhoPimpleFoam executable). I tried the angledDuct tutorial, and a version is correctly working in serial, and using the gnu toolchain it is properly working also in parallel. However when I run the XL-compiled version I get an MPI error when computing the bounding box, in the mesh constructor. I attach below the stack trace
Stack Trace. The exact error is in a "message truncated" error in an MPI_recv:

Fatal error in MPI_Recv: Message truncated, error stack:
MPI_Recv(184)........: MPI_Recv(buf=0x1e16ff65a0, count=24, MPI_PACKED, src=23, tag=1, MPI_COMM_WORLD, status=0x1e16ff6380) failed
MPIDI_Buffer_copy(73): Message truncated; 393 bytes received but buffer size is 24

This usually happens when the amount of data sent does not correspond to the amount of data received.

Does anyone have a clue on where should I look for a possible error, or which test could I perform?
Thank you
