Dear Joe,

you attached an mgdraw file, but your input contains also a SOURCE
command. What about your source routine?

Also, as it has been said many times here, please send also:
- the .log and the .out files of the run which failed
- the ran* file containing the last random number seeds (contained in
   the temporary directory). Make sure that they correspond to the
   random sequence of the input file you have sent.

Best regards,
