Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] mca_pml_ob1_rdma_btls and leave_pinned logic

yes, I'll try openmpi-1.3.3 on Monday. However, I had look at the svn
code before, and haven't noticed any substantial changes in the code
under the question.
The reason I'm writing to devel@ (and not just reporting a bug) is
that I'm interested in how it is _supposed_ to work. Are there people
who wrote the code (or understand it) on the list?
