We have Totalview 2018.1.12 installed. When launching from an IBM Powre9 node (ppc64le), totalview will abort if a user's ~/.totalview directory does not exist.

As we will have many new users on this platform, this will create a lot of confusion. The problem does not occur if Totalview is launched from an x86-64 node.
