To use P-IFISS with COMSOL 3.3 and Matlab 7.3 (R2006b) on a Linux platform the -gcc344 flag
must be added as an argument to the comsol command upon start-up.
For example, type 'comsol -gcc344 matlab' instead of 'comsol matlab'.
This is an incompatibility issue between MATLAB and COMSOL.
Updating to COMSOL 3.3a and using Matlab 7.3 (R2006b) is also an alternative.
