Post BFAST error during match: Could not start thread


I have been playing around with BFAST the last couple of days and I can't get past the match step as it gives me the following error message after it has checked my command line arguments:

$ bfast match -f MgIM62u.fasta -r A1.fastq > bfast.matches.MgIM62u.bmf

Any ideas what this is related to? Since I have no idea what the problem is related to, I don't really know what additional information I should provide to help you help me.

Thanks in advance for your help!
