Hi Johan

Sorry for the delay, I'm currently on holiday.

You can do that globally for the whole state machine with the technique
outlined by Oliver (thanks, Oliver!), or locally for one state or a group of
states by defining a reaction that is triggered by sc::event_base rather than a
concrete event. Such a reaction is usually the last one in the reactions

It seems Tim is right on the spot on this one (thanks, Tim!). Please let us
know whether that works for you.

HTH & Regards,
