Dear Michael

 Is it this binary: Linux-amd64
(Opteron, Athlon64, Intel EMT64)?
 If so I've already tried that, I should have mentioned that. On our
system it's unstable and crashes with random errors after about an hour
of running. This was on 4 nodes (16 cores). It did seem to run a lot
faster than the standard linux version.
