Hello,

When one process sequentially sends two messages of the same "shape" (for example `Msg1' and
`Msg2'), is there some rule enforced concerning the order in which (via same receive pattern) will
they be received?

Suppose a situation when `Msg2' was delivered before `Msg1' was processed.

Can I assume that `Msg1' will be received always before `Msg2' (if I use the same message pattern)?

Thank you in advance.
