Re: Error from function deal_with_sph_node_request

Hello Julianne,

I am also using Grackle for cooling and when I enable star formation, I
encounter the same error. What bugged me the most is that it seems to
happen at random, i.e. sometimes after few stars have spawned and
sometimes only after hundreds or thousands have spawned.
Does your error occur at random too?
Unfortunately I did not have time to debug this problem yet, so if you
or anyone has any ideas, it would be very welcome.
Though needless to say it seems very likely that these kinds of issues
are related to our custom implementations of these sub grid physics
(Grackle is not part of the public Gadget code), so most likely we will
have to find our own solutions to the bugs in our own code...
