[Openmcl-devel] CCL Self destructing with error: "Untitled" already exists

Only one biped was involved. I think I know now what the problem was. Seduced by the power of multi core machines I ran both, 64 and 32 bit, scripts at the same time in two terminal windows. I am pretty sure I did that in the past too without problems. I guess it was OK the generate the 32/64 specific bin files but not the 32/64 independent .nib files.

thanks,  Alex
