This works again -- no change to the configuration or command. (Does the startup process download packages from elsewhere on the internet?)

I've started clusters successfully in the past (most recently, 2 or 3 days ago) using an identical command and configuration, so I'm not sure what might have changed. The error message asks me to forward the crash report to this list, so here it is! The mailing list only accepts messages smaller than 40K, but the crash report is available at .

If I sshmaster into the cluster after the failed start ipython.parallel is not configured properly, so for my purposes at least the error is fatal. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I can provide more information if needed.
