Hi,

Earlier in this thread, I referred to Hans Svensson's work from 2007.
I have now found the paper and see that Lars-Åke Fredlund is also an author:

http://happy-testing.com/hans/papers/EW2007-pitfalls_recipes.pdf

I like this paper. It has a careful description of what's meant by a
'message passing guarantee', it's by far the best I'm aware
of. Another reason to like it is that it provides a result which was
surprising to me at the time, i.e. that pid reuse can happen in
practice (4.1). Still another reason is that it provides the scripts
needed to reproduce the failure.

There's at least one more paper on the same subject on that
page (http://happy-testing.com/hans/).
