Subject: [OMPI users] Problem with OpenMPI (MX btl and mtl) and threads
From: François Trahay (francois.trahay_at_[hidden])

Hi,
I'm encountering some issues when running a multithreaded program with
OpenMPI (trunk rev. 21380, configured with --enable-mpi-threads)
My program (included in the tar.bz2) uses several pthreads that perform
ping pongs concurrently (thread #1 uses tag #1, thread #2 uses tag #2, etc.)
This program crashes over MX (either btl or mtl) with the following
backtrace:

concurrent_ping_v2: pml_cm_recvreq.c:53:
mca_pml_cm_recv_request_completion: Assertion `0 ==
((mca_pml_cm_thin_recv_request_t*)base_request)->req_base.req_pml_complete'
failed.

Any idea ?
