Can we please stop this thread for good?

We had this problem in 8.2 couple of weeks ago with PRman. Unfortunately I don't have the test case with me but it was exactly as Jason found, everything apart from NURBS was outputting the normal properly (and we tried all sorts of tricks to make it work).

I just noticed this;
If Houdini hangs you can force it to crash with

kill -SEGV #pid

This causes a seg fault sending Houdini into its regular crash sequence, thus saving out a file to /tmp.

I would be curious how/on what conditions this works/can be invoked. On my system at work (Fedora7 mutant) -SIGV doesn't seem to exist as a flag. Is it a SUSE specific thing (that would be freaky)? Any clues?

Thanks.
