AMBER: ambpdb segmentation fault

I've just recently installed amber8 on a G5 powermac (dual 1.8GHz),
which seems to have worked fine. all the modules i've used so far
(nucgen, sander, xleap) work fine, but while working through the first
DNA tutorial, i found that ambpdb returns a segmentation fault every
time i call it, regardless of the input (even none). this is the input
i was trying to get to work:

ambpdb -p polyAT_vac.prmtop < polyAT_vac_init_min.rst >

and i made sure that the input files were all valid, matched the
tutorial, etc.

i applied the patch bugfix.all and recompiled, and am now at a loss as
to what to do. i'm really new to unix systems and compiling and
whatnot, so your help is definitely appreciated. thanks,

justin litchfield
