Sorry for the delay, and sorry again because in last mail i had the
wrong taste that it was some kind of homework problem.

On your code, the only point where it could fail is if one of the
precalculated message size values is wrongly calculated and executes
the Recieve where it shouldn't.

 From previous mails i understand that no if(ok!=MPI... line fires
and there's no Sender waiting. The Ssend ends when the Recv starts to
receive, not when the Recv ends the receive, so the sender may get an
Ok but if there's an error Recv keeps the block. As you are using
blocking communications, you can't do anything to prevent this, for
example, check the Recv status while receiving.

Try to use Send instead Ssend (it should work but it could hang too)
or change design to a non-blocking approach.
