I'm not sure of the exact pre-required settings I had when I compiled
FLEXPART to have a successful executable, but there seem to be various
default parameter settings in some of the FLEXPART include files that
will lead to some ginormous multi dimensional arrays. 
I was pretty sure I did the exact same procedure when I compiled
FLEXPART later and got the non working executable, but if the .bss space
was too large, I must have done something else before. It's just that I
can't possibly think of anything I did different.
However, I'm determined to locate the problem, to advice the FLEXPART
developers. I don't want others to go through something similar.
