Worth trying:

srun /bin/hostname

Just in case there's something weird in the path that causes it to hit a 
network filesystem before the local disk.

Also worth adding some -v options in there to see if there's any 
unexpected blockages before executing the commands.  There is also the 
option of doing --slurmd-debug=verbose to get more logging out of slurmd 
for just that run as well.

All the best,
