Dear Christian,

Thanks, this sounds convincing.

Best regards.

Why do you think that it won't work? It should work!

The Waitall at the left side progresses both {Irecv and Issend}.
The Ssend at the right side progresses {Irecv, Issend and SSend}.
Therefore the first two operations on both sides can be matched, 
processed and completed within the third function. The rest (i.e. recv 
left & ssend; waitall right) is easy: the recv matches the ssend and the

right waitall will just return the status of both (already completed) 
nonblocking operations.
