Providing the relevant sections of code here would be very helpful.

I would tell you to add some printf statements to your code to see what
data is stored in your variables on the master before it sends them to
each node, but Jeff Squyres and I agreed to disagree in a civil manner
on that debugging technique earlier this week, and I'd hate to re-open
those old wounds by suggesting that technique here. ;)
