Further clarification: MPI_Address was *removed* in MPI-3 (it was deprecated somewhere in the MPI-2.x series; I don't remember the exact version offhand). So it's definitely incorrect to const-ify its arguments.

+1 -- thanks for the heads-up and catching this one before we release 1.7.5.

Did you find any others, perchance?

If MPICH has this minor buglet, you'll probably need to have a configure test to figure out whether you need to const-ify MPI_Address or not. Be sure to report this buglet upstream to MPICH so that they can fix it.
