This error is very strange, and means that for some reason one of your
timers was not correctly initialized. Does your Amber installation
pass all tests? It may help if you paste the exact (complete) error
message, along with the input you are using. Also, let us know what
version of Amber you are using, what compilers you used, and what
flags were passed to 'configure'.
