[petsc-dev] TS error with optimimzied build

   It is useful to run with valgrind, even on a completely different machine, when you have errors because it will detect any memory corruption. So currently I do my valgrind runs on a linux machine.

   Assuming the prefix is correct -snes_monitor should print an initial residual norm before doing any solves so it is curious you got no output. You can run with -snes_error_if_not_converged -ksp_error_if_not_converged to try to get it to output as soon as a problem is detected.

I am using -snes_monitor but get no output. This code was working and I added a new feature. It does seem to fail when this new feature is used.
