Hi. Checked the archives and didn't see anything on this about NWX. In a
nutshell 6.2.0 NWX is segfaulting upon selection of an obsite via the GUI.
System running RHEL 5.1 on x64_86 architecture
Upgraded to 6.2.0 (went well)
Opened a terminal window, manually launched nwx (typing "nwx")
"Resource File: /internal1/peter/GEMPAK/GEMPAK6.2.0/resource/Nwx" appears
in terminal window (followed by the NWX windows opening)
Right click on the map, select "Observed Data", then "Surface Hourlies"
Clicking any ob site (red circle) results in the immediate close of NWX
windows and a "Segmentation Fault" message left in the terminal window (no
$GEMTBL/nwx/master.tbl file contains the line "SFC_HRLY sfstns.tbl 0
$OBS/hrly hrly" (and $OBS/hrly only contains YYYYMMDD.hrly files)
$OBS/hrly files are not corrupt since the 6.2.0 version of sflist displays
the contents just fine (and so too does NWX ver 5.11.4)
Other 6.2.0 programs like NSHARP and NMAP2 process/display data just fine
also (NMAP2 display sfc obs as expected)
Notice NWX doesn't crash, but produces "Opening/reading 'sfsstns.tbl'
error dialog box when I intentionally specify either a false directory or
a false extension in the SFC_HRLY line in master.tbl
Hard to troubleshoot this one because there is no other "crash" info
beside the seg fault message.
