Yes, I was unaware there is a -trace- option to -ice-, but -set trace on-, issued before any other command, should give you a log regardless.

The suggestion was not to use the -trace- option, but to 
precede the -ice- command with the command -set trace on-.
The former can be used to see if the Gibbs sample has
converged, while the latter can be used to find problem in
the program.

Hope this helps,
