[molpro-user] Scratch file complaints on AIX, Solaris

Hello All!

2006.1 patchlevel 9 (and earlier) always complain about accessing a 
scratch file. On AIX 5.2/xlf 9.1:
1525-024 The OPEN statement cannot be processed because STATUS=SCRATCH was 
coded in the OPEN statement but the file /tmp/kuu-ukko/XlfRtLjypqb is 
already connected to this unit with a different STATUS value.  The program 
will recover by ignoring the STATUS= specifier.

Solaris 9/f90 8.0 automatically reveals the culprit:
  ******  FORTRAN RUN-TIME SYSTEM  ******
  Error 1141:  status is specified and not 'OLD' for connected unit
  Location:  the OPEN statement at line 85 of "prepin.f"
  Unit:  89
  Status:  SCRATCH
Received signal 6 IO trap

Line 85 is:
       open (ixmlprepin,status='scratch',form='FORMATTED')

I assume this is just a cosmetic bug, as the AIX (and Linux) testjobs 
finish properly (Solaris 9 fails half). But perhaps there's an easy fix 
for it, which would make the stderr outputs cleaner :-)

Have a nice day,
     Mikael J. / p. 2934
