Debugger fails on open

When I run the debugger (both in GUI and text modes), as soon as I open my target (compiled and linked with -g), I get the following message:

/usr/pgi52/linux86-64/5.2/bin/pgdbg -text -tp k8-64 mesoscale

Any ideas about what could be wrong?

Hi Scott,

It looks like PGDBG is seg faulting for some reason. However, 5.2-1 is a relatively old release so this error has most likely been fixed. Is it possible for me to download the code your using to check or have you download a more recent release? The most recent release is 6.1-3 but you can also find 5.2-4 on our release archive page.
