[gmx-users] Segmentation fault preprocessing with pull_geometry = cylinder

On transitioning from Gromacs version 3.3.3 to 4.0.3, I have encountered
a segmentation fault (output below) preprocessing a constraint force
calculation, while using the pull code with the "pull_geometry =
cylinder" option in the mdp file. This problem appears is reproducible
on 32 and 64 bit architecture systems, and is present using both single
and double precision versions of the grompp executable. Alternative
pull options (constraint, umbrella, and constant_force) also generated
this error. This calculation can be successfully run using Gromacs
version 3.3.3 with the below ppa file options.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
Gromacs 4.0.3 mdp pull options:
pull = constraint
pull_geometry = cylinder
pull_r1 = 1
pull_r0 = 1.5
pull_dim = N N Y
pull_vec1 = 0 0 1
pull_group1 = Buk
pull_group0 = Ref
pull_init1 = .4
Gromacs 3.3.3 ppa file:
runtype = constraint
reftype = dynamic
r = 1.
rc = 1.5
pull_dim = N N Y
constraint_direction = 0 0 1
group_1 = BUK
reference_group = Ref
constraint_distance1 = 0.400
