Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Bug in opal sos changes

Looks like the comparison to OMPI_ERROR worked by accident -- just because it happened to have a value of -1.

The *_f_to_c_index values are the return value from a call to opal_point_array_add(). This value will either be non-negative or -1. -1 indicates a failure. It's not an *_ERR_* code -- it's a -1 index value. So the comparisons should really have been to -1 in the first place.

Rolf / Abhishek -- can you fix? Did this happen in other *_f_to_c_index member variable comparisons elsewhere?
