The simultaneous two-proton decay of a resonance in 18Ne was taken into account. Extensive simulations indicate that data acquired with a larger lab angle coverage could easily distinguish between the extreme decay mechanisms. Both the kinematic reconstruction analysis and the 2p events with the 6.15 MeV 1- state in 18Ne.
