[Wrf-users] WRF 3.2 and PGI 10.5

Hi all, in an attempt to see if I can get around the issues I've had
with WRF 3.2 when built with PGI 7.0-2, I've been trying to build/run
WRF 3.2 with PGI 10.5 - but I've had even less luck here.  BTW, I use
the PGI C compilers as well Fortran (rather than using gcc for C).

I can build WRF and WPS with 10.5 and I get no errors, but when I try to
actually run a simulation, I get a segmentation fault with metgrid.
This happens when built either as a parallel (dmpar) or serial.  I've
also tried greatly reducing the optimization for WRF as well.

This has been on a fairly old RedHat Linux installation (3.4.6-3) on
dual-dual core Opteron nodes.

Has anyone successfully built/run WRF 3.2 using PGI 10.5?  Has anyone
seen anything like this?  Any thoughts on how to resolve this?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
