Well I've been using Maya 5.0 for a little while now.. had the typical problems with my hardware config, with the segfaulting on startup and all that jive.. got that corrected, but now I've encountered a new problem, with batch rendering. The only error messages I can tell is that I'm getting a signal 11 trying to load the Mayatomr plugin, which is the mental ray rendering plugin. Thing is, it works fine if I start up maya normally.. I can render single frames no problem, yet it seems to fail, and gives me *no* error messages, when I run maya in batch mode.
Here's the full output:

Any ideas? I'm not very familiar with tools like gdb or strace so maybe some hints on using this would be helpful.
