[gembud] garp on maverics freezes

I've built GEMPAK7 on Mac OS X 10.9.5 Maverics.  
WooHoo! -- Thank you Kevin Tyle!

Being so emboldened, I also built openGARP on the same platform.

If only an error-free make also meant things would 'just work'.

The GARP primary window opens fine.  
What works:
Images - 
- the satellite images
- mollweide
- sounder
- mdr
- nexrcomp
x nids

Surface Obs

What doesn't work:

Images - NIDS - when drilling opening a site directory from the 'Data Scale' 
window
gdb info:

Program received signal EXC_BAD_ACCESS, Could not access memory.

Same EXC_BAD_ACCESS errors as Model Plan Projection - 
- Model Cross Section
- Model Time Height
- Model Vertical Profile

So I'd say there's a problem with getting the grid information coding ... 
except for the NIDS problem.

Any suggestions?  A simple compiler option modification?
