I am running RedHat Linux 5 on a Dell Optiplex 745. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have written several routines that use various parallel_ algorithms but I can't test them to do weird errors.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Pretty sure I've run into this. If you're using gcc, try compiling with -O2. Otherwise please post your compile flags.

Josh,

what TBB package do you use? Can you reproduce the issue with the latest development update? As far as I remember there was an issue in MallocMutex class that was fixed in development updates.

I am using the Commercially Aligned Release. I messed around with my .cshrc startup script a little more and added -O2 as the above suggested and now it works dandy (twice as fast or so). Now I can proceeding with adding TBB to Huffman :)
