[ADMB Users] "xxglobal.tmp" error with tpl2rem

   I'm just beginning to use AD Model Builder.
  I have successfully (after some struggles) created a few different
likelihood models, with results matching previous model fits in R.
Now I'm trying to add a random effect.  Versions of the TPL file
below compiled OK with tpl2cpp before I added the random effect;
now, with tpl2rem, I'm getting

cat: xxalloc4.tmp: No such file or directory
cat: xxalloc5.tmp: No such file or directory
Error executing command cat xxglobal.tmp   xxhtop.tmp   header.tmp   xxalloc1.tmp   xxalloc2.tmp   xxalloc3.tmp   xxalloc4.tmp    xxalloc5.tmp    xxtopm.tmp    xxalloc6.tmp > mccoypred4.cpp

   There was an issue with similar keywords listed on the ADMB site, but it
was listed as "resolved".

  I'm running on Ubuntu Linux 9.04, with a recent (?? can't find version number ??)
version of ADMB. (Maybe 9.0.202 from the google code page?)

  I'd be happy to provide any other diagnostics/information if that will
help solve / diagnose ...
