Subject: [OMPI devel] Win_fence() with assertion=MPI_MODE_NOPRECEDE|MPI_MODE_NOSUCCEED

Open MPI errors in Win_fence() when the assertion contains both

Could you explain me why the following code is wrong? Please note that
the fence call with assertion !=0 is issued before and after fence
calls with assertion=0, and I'm not making any modification to the
local window, nor issuing any RMA call. My understanding of MPI RMA
operations is quite limited, but I would say that my code is valid and
should not fail.

[dalcinl_at_kw2060 openmpi]$ cat win_fence.c
#include <mpi.h>
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
  MPI_Win win;
  MPI_Init(&argc, &argv);
  MPI_Win_create(MPI_BOTTOM, 0, 1, MPI_INFO_NULL, MPI_COMM_SELF, &win);
  MPI_Win_fence(0, win);
  MPI_Win_fence(0, win);
  return 0;
[dalcinl_at_kw2060 openmpi]$ mpicc win_fence.c
[dalcinl_at_kw2060 openmpi]$ ./a.out
