After deleting the obsolete option, i decided to do a test ... hmmm bad idea?

It rendered the first frame, but painted two individual images, one on each display (full screen) then locked up my system. Could this be a problem with Test_Abort_Count? I routinely us the +X option without and problems, however I've never passed an additional argument (count) along with the +X option ...

This behavior (lock up) is repeatable ... and yes twice was enough.

Has anyone else observed this problem?

No such issue here (with either version (smp crest or mine)). A previous version of mine, before I pushed #5477 in it), had a failure with double-release detected by glibc before render. But just pushing in #5477 and recompiling (with & without debug) removed that issue (that does not make sense, as 5477 is not triggered by raddem.pov)
My system is Ubuntu 11.04 64 bits (i7), gcc (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.5.2-8ubuntu4) 4.5.2

I updated the number of frames to 300 to make a slower movie. It went fine.

Change#5514 get the Radiosity= in a comment. That should allow to run the file fine.
From the distribution, it was the sole ini file still with it.
(checked with ' grep -i -r "Radiosity=" . ' )
