Jeff and Ralph,
Ok, I downshifted to a helloWorld example (attached), bottom line after I
hit the MPI_Recv call, my local variable (rank) gets borked.
I have compiled with -m64 -fdefault-integer-8 and even have assigned kind=8
to the integers (which would be the preferred method in my case)
Your help is appreciated.
