bug in phreeqc.cvode?

Hi David,
I found some strange thing when running the transport model, i.e., sometime the selected output file is empty. 
Don't know if it is a bug.
Look at the small example below, the output fild tmp1 is empty after running in my computer.  


  pH 7   charge
  units mol/kgw
  pe 4
  -water 0.03375 
  Na 1e-3
  Cl  2.9e-03 

SOLUTION 0  Inlet concentration
  pH 7    
  units mol/kgw
  pe 4
  -water 0.03375  

  -cells 28
  -shifts  50 
  -time_step 30857  #10.5d/28*86400s/d
  -flow_direction forward
  -lengths 28*5e-3 
  -boundary_conditions flux flux
  -dispersivities 28*0.012
  -correct_disp true
  -diffusion_coefficient 0.0000 
  -punch_cells 28
  -punch_frequency 1 
  -warnings false

  -file tmp1
  -selected_out true
  -user_punch true
  -reset false

  -reset false
  -selected_output true
  -status true

5   pv=STEP_NO/28
145  ph=-log10(ACT("H+"))
160  PUNCH pv,ph,"1"
