Scratch that.

At first I was unable to find a machine that exhibited this bug, but
once I found one, the above solution seemed to be the fix.  However,
what was happening was the first time nvvp was run, it would segfault.
Then the second and subsequent times it would open normally.
Running 'rm -rf ~/nvvp_workspace' would cause nvvp to segfault the
next time it was run.

I have now found another machine that segfaults every time nvvp is
run.  The solution for this machine is to add the line below (without
the -D) to /usr/lib/nvidia-visual-profiler/configuration/config.ini.


With the above fix in place, the machine that segfaulted the first
time nvvp was run, no longer segfaults after removing nvvp_workspace.
