Try relaxing anything you can. If this solves your problem, try resetting
the limits one by one to find the offending one. If you use bash as your
shell, ulimit is a built-in command. Type "man bash" and look for ulimit in
the resulting man page for the options. Something similar probably holds for
other shells, but I can't tell you exactly (I use bash).

Ouch! I believe version 9 of the evaluation/free academic use intel
compilers are still somewhat buggy: I was never able to produce a working
octopus using them, it always segfaulted. Try to find an older version of
the Intel compilers (versions 7 used to work fine, I did not try versions 8)
or using the g95 free compiler, last time I tried it worked. The resulting
executable is rather slow, but it works. Unfortunately, the gfort compiler
is not yet able to compile octopus.
I hope this helps...
