No segfaults of the differing type you saw.

I did get two different Parse Error signatures early. One for an array 
subscript out of range and another via the include of parse_fore.tmp 
attempting to access an uninitialized array element. Neither made sense 
to me.

Then the blasted povr code proceeded to run cleanly both partial runs 
and full ones for 6 passes.

I went back to the original failing set up starting at frame 3000 with 
both verbose and log frames on - which had been failing at the same 
'spots' for me - and at least the most recent pass decided other spots / 
cylinders should now fail.

Only thing that's clear is what was clear before - we have no problems 
until the frame counts are 2500, 3000 or more.

Anyhow. Answering the question you asked a year ago. I don't see the 
segfaults you saw with verbose off and logging on. Mostly things worked 
in this configuration...

Future posts on this povr only problem, I'll put in a new thread 
somewhere. Probably user.patches. This thread got really long and became 
'twelve ways' unrelated to the original topic!
