[torquedev] RE: pbs_mom suddenly throws floating-point exception on execute

The binaries are hosted locally on each of the 30 compute nodes.  To add to the confusion, we have another cluster with 14 compute nodes on which torque works perfectly.

Even compiling with -g -O0 gives me a useless backtrace, though it seems that every single torque program crashes at the same address: 0x0000003c08f088a8.  I may have to revert back to an older version to see if that will work.

But if the binary is served out from an NFS server (which is normal practice 
here at VPAC) the same corruption on the server could affect the clients as 
it runs.  I've seen cases where modifying a binary on an NFS server (SLES9) 
killed the running binaries on the clients over a short period of time. :-(

That would appear to rule that out then.. :-(

Did you have any luck with compiling it with "-g -O0" to get some decent 
debugging out of it with gdb ?
