Folks: I have been utilizing DistributeDefinition[myFunctionDef] with success in the past.  Lately when I run the function I get the following errors:


During evaluation of In[2]:= LinkObject::linkd :  "Unable to communicate with closed link \
LinkObject["'/Applications/Mathematica.app/Contents/MacOS/MathKernel' \
-subkernel -noinit -mathlink", 71, 11]. =E2=80=98=E2=84=A2=CB=9CButtonBox["",

Out[2]= {=E2=80=98=E2=84=A2=CB=9C
TagBox["tryFunctDef",
HoldForm]}


It seems I can only access three out of the four Kernels available on my machine.  I am using Matheamtica 8 on a Mac OSX 10.6.6.  I think this may have coincided with a change from Mathematica 7 to Mathematica 8.

Any help?
