Crashes with PMGRID > 128

        I've been using GADGET for a while with no trouble but have
encountered an error I can't seem to get rid of if I try and ramp up
force resolution. With PMGRID = 128 I've had no problems but with
anything higher I'm getting the error

One of the processes started by mpirun has exited with a nonzero exit
code. This typically indicates that the process finished in error.
If your process did not finish in error, be sure to include a "return
0" or "exit(0)" in your C code before exiting the application.

PID 31377 failed on node n12 (XXX.XX.XXX.XX) due to signal 13.

        Sometimes it gives me signal 15 instead. Each node has >2 Gigs
of RAM with 16 nodes. I get this error regardless of the number of
particles in the simulation.

        Can anyone suggest a reason for this error and a possible
