Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Dropped message for the non-existing communicator
From: Edgar Gabriel (gabriel_at_[hidden])

was this with the trunk or v1.3? If it was the trunk, was it before
r19929 was applied? The reason I ask is because r19929 should remove all
error messages related to 'non-existing communictors'. Hierarch btw. is
not the cause for the error messages even before that, it just exposes
it more frequently...
