Effectively that summarizes the problem that I’m seeing. Different curves fail at different points. However it seems deterministic. I’ll get more time later in the day to get an example put together. 

I’m unsure as to whether ellsea is crashing or the return value causes problems later in the code. It’s worth noting that ellap worked flawlessly in the same piece of code. Basically I swapped out ellap for ellsea (with minor changes of course) and started to see this problem.
