Secmentation fault in CCCSM3/CAM

Secmentation fault in CCCSM3/CAM

I'm trying to run a paleoclimate simulation using CCSM3 and am encountering a segmentation fault and core dump which is caused by CAM. I have already run a one-year simulation with current day (default) datasets and the same model configuration as what I'm running now (in fact, the build and run scripts differ only in the $CASE and $CASEROOT).

Here are the errors grep'd from poe.stderr

Tasks 16-27 are mapped to CAM and there are coredump directories in $EXEROOT/atm, so that would seem to be where the problem lies.

I've used the same initial data sets to run standalone CAM without an error, so I can't figure out how changing the input data is the problem. The segmentation fault seems to occur just as the integration is about to get going (i.e., after initialization of all models is completed), again indicating that all the necessary input files were found and read successfully. For example, here's the end of the cpl and atm logs (ocn, ice and lnd similarly indicated they had made it through initialization).

Does anyone have any ideas about where I should start looking for problems?
