I am trying to pin down why my version of VMD 1.91.1 built from source has started seg faulting. (Note, i cannot run vmd -debug because gdb is no longer included with Xcode on Mavericks as a command line tool, you can get it from macports but it is now called ggdb )

 I started with verifying if I download and run the VMD1.9.1 binary that it still works. What I found is that this version does work, MacOS X OpenGL (32-bit Intel x86) (Apple MacOS-X 10.5.x or later).

This version crashes, MacOS X OpenGL, CUDA (32-bit Intel x86) (Apple MacOS-X 10.5.x or later with CUDA)

It cannot seem to interface with the cuda library correctly
