Thanks for the suggestion.  I am not calling additional parallelized routines from the threaded functions.  However, I am using the threaded version of the Intel MKL BLAS, and there are matrix manipulations in the threaded functions.  Even though MKL is supposed to be thread-safe, would it make sense that this is what is causing the problem?
