Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] When can I use OOB channel?

Hi Ralph,

I'm quite embarrassed, I misread the function prototype and was passing in
the actual proc_name rather than a pointer to it! It didn't complain when I
was compiling so I didn't think twice. It was silly mistake on my part in
any case! That RML tip is still handy though, thanks.
