I am running Mathematica 2.2.3 on Digital UNIX. When I fire up the X
front end and evaluate an expression, the mathematica window titlebar
indicates that the expression is being evaluated by changing to
"Running...", then I get a dialog box titled New Kernel Interrupt. There
are options under two headings: Evaluation Control and Mathlink Control.
When I abort the command being run, mathematica closes down after asking
if I want to save the notebook. When I look at the processes I own after
mathematica shuts down, there is a mathraw and mathclient left laying
around. A new process is created each time this procedure is executed
and must be manually killed or else I end up with a whole bunch of dead
processes sucking up system resources.

I know for sure that the kernel exists and is being launched, but I
can't figure out why the Interrupt dialog is popping up. There are no
error diagnostics. Is there perchance a debug mode of sorts that I can
use to figure out where things are going wrong. Please email your
responses directly to me and I will summarize later.

Eagerly awaiting version 3.0???
