Dear Timo,

I've re-installed my os x now and installed aspect again, but it's still
the same.

Concerning deal.ii step-32:
It still doesn't work with mpi. I also tested to run it directly, but it's
the same error, see attached file. I really have to set the graphical
output to false and then it works fine.

Concerning aspect:
I'm currently testing all cookbooks for whether they work with mpi or not.
As far as I've come right now, only stokes works with mpi. The others,
i. e.:

- composition-active,
- convection-box
- convection-box-3d
- free-surface

all get sooner or later the same exception, but I like to run them
directly later, to determine, whether this is also the case without mpi,
since it's something concerning the residual.

So, I'll give you an update as soon as I tested everything.
