If you wouldn't mind, could you try it again after applying the attached
patch? This looks like a problem we encountered on another release where
something in the runtime didn't get initialized early enough. It only shows
up in certain circumstances, but this seems to fix it.

You can apply the patch by going to the top directory where you installed
the code, saving the patch, and then "patch -p0 < patch.txt". You will then
just need to do another "make install".

If this solves your problem, I will have the patch incorporated into the
1.1.2 release code.

Thanks
Ralph
