Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] RGET issue when send is less than receive
From: Nathan Hjelm (hjelmn_at_[hidden])

I thought I fixed this problem awhile back (though looking at the code its possible I never committed the fix). I will have to look through my local repository and see what happened to that fix. Your fix might not work correctly since a RGET can be broken up into multiple get operations. It may work, I would just need to test it to make sure.
