I had no idea whether this issue was fork-related or OpenCL-related. For all I knew, the issue might only emerge when forking reaches a certain device count, which would explain why I'm seeing it on ZTEX when others might not. My reasoning was that if the same error was appearing on a non-OpenCL system, that this might be a diagnostically useful data point, and was therefore topical for the thread. As someone not steeped in john's development, this line of reasoning seemed ... reasonable. :) But since that's not the case, I'll stop hijacking this thread. :) Royce
