Recent Advisor problems may be caused by PIN

Lately, we have been getting many reports of problems with the analysis tools (Inspector, Advisor, and VTune Amplifier) caused by a problem with PIN, the tool they use to instrument software.

PIN problems can produce several types of error. One of the more common ones is
__bionic_open_tzdata_path: PIN_CRT_TZDATA not set!

If you believe you may be affected, please see this article for more information.

Accuracy of parallel vs. sequential computations

I have a finite element code in which I am trying to parallelize a subroutine. The difference in the results between parallel and sequential computation is around 1E-7. I read in the StackOverflow post linked below that floating point operations are not commutative, so one should not expect identical results when performing calculations in multithreaded codes. How large can this type of error become? After several thousand time steps, would an error of 1E-7 be understandable?
