"Aborted" implies that the task program found an error condition and
died.  It doesn't do that when I start the program but I don't have any

It looks like the maintainer for the task program unsubscribed from this
mailing list in September.  Maybe he's reading the mailing list via
gmane or something but I've bcc'ed him just in case.

Federico are you still supporting the task program?  If so, it looks
like we need some support here.
