There was a small deallocation bug in vmc\atoms.cpp, the array cumulative\e was deallocated two times instead of once. This has been fixed. There have also been problems with MPI due to upgrades of Redhat from Redhat 4 to Redhat 5. Redhat 5 uses python2.4 instead of python2.3, which was used to set up our parallel cluster. Our system managers are trying to fix this problem.
