Hi Jothi

Was this aggregate or non-aggregate mode?  

I don't see any problems with either Aggregate or non-aggregate mode
P_Write_Indv at 2 processors.   At 4 processors, I also have no
problems with aggregate mode.  

4 processor non-aggregate P_Write_Indv, however, crashes really early
in the benchmark.   That's pretty odd to me, because it's my
understanding (section of the IMB manual) that the only
difference between aggregate and non-aggregate mode is that buffers
are flushed after every operation in the non-aggregate case.
