(a) What compiler, machine, operating system?

(b) Does your installation pass the antechamber test suite?

    cd $AMBERHOME/test
    make test.antechamber

(c) when you say "every time", do you mean that you have used different
pdb files? Or that it crashes repeatedly with the same input? If the results
seem to depend on what pdb file you use, you will probably need to post
your "temp.pdb" file.
