I am using the pvmind example as a basis for my a parallel
implementatition using PVM. I want the GA to reside on the
pvm master and farm out the evaluations to slave nodes. This
is all running on sgi's.

The Problem: When I use a deme GA the slaves hang after several

When I use some other GA instead (e.g. a simple GA) everything
works just fine. It is therefore my belief that the failure
has something to do with the deme GA implementation. 

Has anyone a comment on this ? Thanks!
