[MITgcm-support] Orlanski boundary conditions

Dear mitgcm folks,
I have been using MITgcm_c62q for a long time, running process study
simulations of internal waves, forcing the wave at the west boundary
with specified boundary conditions, and allowing the wave to propagate
out of the domain at the east boundary with orlanski boundary conditions.
I have a new student starting research with me, and he has been
attempting to set the code using the latest version of the code,
downloaded last week through CVS. He successfully ran the internal wave
test case, but when he added orlanski boundary conditions at the eastern
boundary (along with appropriate changes to the data file, i.e. no
nonlinear free surface etc), the code blows up. With version c62q he can
successfully convert the internal wave test case to run with orlanski
boundary conditions at the eastern boundary.
So my question is: have the orlanski boundary conditions been verified
for newer versions of the code? Can you point me to an orlanski boundary
condition test case?
