At the moment I am at a conference and don't have the code with me. But it was something like 
g = graph(g, false, true)
for line in f:
    L1 = g.add_vertex(1)
    L2 = g.add_vertex(1)
    g.add_edge(L1, L2)

sc = properties.StronglyConnectedComponents(g)
Fails here output
Bus Error (Core Dumped)

I can try and send the core when i get back as well, haven't yet had the time to get it. 

As for everything else thank you that i very helpful.
