Please do not feel bad about reporting problems -- despite the fact
that it creates more work for us, it makes be OMPI better package.
So keep 'em coming!

Is there a way that you can share your code so that we can see what
is happening? I looked through the code for MPI_WAIT and
MPI_STARTALL and they seem to be doing the Right Things, at least in
terms of the persistent requests.

If you're getting error -105, it looks like we're not converting this
to a proper MPI error code before returning it to you (-105 ==
OMPI_ERR_REQUEST, but it should be converted to MPI_ERR_REQUEST
before it is returned). I'll poke around to see what's happening here.
