has had crashes in mcsmear with the same exit code. Sean Dobbs has 
agreed to look into it.

Sean and Mark have discussed talks at the Offline session of the 
collaboration meeting. The current plan is for Mark to give an overview 
including news from the HDGeant4 meetings and slides from Thomas on 
MCwrapper, Sean will summarize analysis and calibration, and Alex will 
report on launches (if he agrees to do so). Other topics can be 
accommodated. If you have a talk you would like to give please contact 
Sean or Mark.
