Mental ray renders overlapping particle clouds poorly

I've got a problem I really can't seem to solve:

When particle clouds overlap, Mental Ray appears to draw a box around one of the particle clouds and render it right through the other particle cloud (see attachment). This makes it completely impossible to make particle clouds overlap. How do I solve this?

The attachment shows a rocket with a smoke trail. The fire and smoke are seperate particle clouds.
Do you hear the voices too!?
