Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] libevent

Leonardo,

All events generated by the libevent are catched internally by the
ompi library, but are not propagated until the next call to
opal_progress. If you want to use alarms that trigger outside the
opal_progress you will have to deal directly with the libevent (and
not use ORTE_TIMER_EVENT).
