Thank you for the link.  I had known about that work, but it's only for an 
academic license.  I did request it once (I am also an adjunct professor at 
Villanova University) to look at it, but the academic license holds me back 
from using it as I would have liked to.

The University of Pisa Computer Science Department have also reimplemented the 
original RELAX-IV Fortran code, but into C++ instead.  They offer their version 
with warning that the algorithm may fail to converge.  The full text is:

 "RelaxIV is our C++ re-implementation of the
  Relaxation algorithm by D. Bertsekas, based on
  his original Fortran code. The code seems to
  work fairly well as a general-purpose MCF
  solver, and it is apparently capable of dealing
  with problems with nonintegral costs and/or
  capacities, although you have to be warned that
  Relaxation algorithms may in theory fail to
  converge with nonintegral data."

This information may be of interest to those using the new 'glp_mincost_relax4'
