[Sidefx-houdini-list] 8 core render hickups

We set up a new 8 core MacPro running ubuntu 7.10 a couple of weeks  
ago- The system is blazingly fast and quite wonderful to work on.   
The only problem we're having is scattered segmentation fault errors  
when rendering-

When rendering from within the package, or rendering a batch of  
indexed .ifd files from the command line, once or twice in 100 frames  
I'm getting "segmentation fault (core dumped)"  - and the frame does  
not render- - Occasionally the render stops, but usually  my script  
continues the render without problems-

  When I monitor processes I can see memory is holding up fine (8  
megs) and all 8 processors are working away on the frames- It's a  
minor irritation to pick up the few missing frames, bit I'm thinking  
that I must be missing something in my ROP that's causing this  

Anyone have any idea of what's going on-?
