hi ana,

mesa is more powerful than i imagined!

my lone suggestion is to begin monitoring the system characteristics;
process name, # of threads, % cpu, memory used, swap space, etc.
then start inlist_c_burning. do any of the system characteristics get large
as the system bogs down and eventually freezes?

But I've now encountered  trouble while trying to run a copy of the make_o_ne_wd test suite.  I've tried running it 3 times and in every single one of them when the model reaches the inlist_c_burning  my computer fully freezes (to the point it has to be unplugged to be shut down).
