The "noshakemask" array has a length of 256. It may be that the namelist
implementation does not allow such a long string. What compiler are you

Try this: go into mdread.f, and change the third argument to atommask() (about
line 1989) from 0 to 1. This will give debug information about what the mask
command is doing that might be helpful.
