Sounds like it could be some kind of memory allocation problem, but I 
can't understand why it works on every other platform.
Still, the file you sent me - it crashed every time on 3.1.3 for you, 

We could try to do it the other way around - send me your executable and 
I'll see if I can reproduce the crash
on a different version of Tru64 (too check if it's the libraries or not).

Sorry, g_disre is one of the programs that I've never used... most of my 
simulations are on membranes :-)
