 Hello Maria

 Let me try to help anyway since you received no answer up so fare...

  Bad luck.

  Really ?

  Yes ; you are in a mess. But don't worry, you are not alone.

  No comment.


  Ok, stop joking ; you have the nasty problem of using two big softwares, then
the upper traceback may be a hell to debug. But in this particular case (crash in CINT)
it seems to be a T-problem ; probably something wrong in a CINT script. It seems
that the interpreter is unable to find some outside compiled code. Perhaps a crash in some
of your end-of-job CINT script ? 
 Else the crash seems to happen after hours (which is anyway a pain ; whatever 
the software used), then check the (expected) file size and available space
on your disk.... Else you may have a memory leak problem ; check that your "new"
have their pending "delete". (Use "top" to see if your job consume memory).
Verify also your .rootrc for fancy plugins. Are you using some threading ? etc, etc, etc...
Can't say more, but the best is definitely to try to get help at http://root.cern.ch ; the ball
seems to be for the other camp. Browse for example the (hundred) of bug reports around cint.

 Else you can plan to jump in a train for CERN with your computer, they have a
workshop next week...

   Regards
