hehe, simple question, complicated answer. Here is Arnaud... Arf.

Ok, seriously. IMHO, I think that the problem comes from the fact that
you Pablo are not a user anymore. If you are to develop a tool to
vizualize MSG, you're not user anymore, but developer. 

If so, you'd better load some private header of simgrid and directly
dig into the data structures. But you still shouldn't modify the
internal, only read them...

Bye, Mt.
