The very first thing is to inlcude the author (John William Sinclair 
<sinclairjw@ornl.gov>), as I believe he does not listen to tech-talk for bug 
reports.

Then, make sure a core file gets generated. If not, enable this by issuing 
the command

> ulimit -c unlimited

on the shell before starting edm. Now, load edm (the executable) into a 
debugger (I use ddd as frontend to gdb), let it crash, load the core file, 
ask ddd to let you see the stack backtrace. Post this backtrace.

Cheers
Ben
