Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] debugger changes

Now this thread is starting to read like an episode of The Big Bang Theory.

One possible guess as to how/why MPICH has managed w/o "volatile" would
be that they may pass less aggressive optimization flags to the
compilers. It is a then a question of which MPI implementation is
supporting a choice of compilers, not a selection of debuggers.
