The original of this message was sent on 2/18.  To date it has greeted 
freeted with thundering silence.  I would really appreciate an answer, 
even if no solution is readily apparent.

> Running gmxdemo as the superuser generated 39 files (including gmxdemo

> Pointers towards solutions will be much appreciated.
> Thanks in advance.
Again, thanks in advance.
