Jim Eggert sent me his latest reports, which I
forwarded to Perry & Steve. Jim said that he could not
get them to upload.

The verify12 report errors out as soon as I run it. It
gives this error:

Scanning individuals: I1 FATAL ERROR ???? in file
<stralloc.c> at line 23 ???? PASSERT failure ??
Aborting now. Core dump? [y/n]

However, it does not recognize y or n, but it does
recognize ENTER. It then leaves the database in an open
state and I have to use the -f option to get back into
it. There is nothing in the error log.

I brought it to Jim's attention, and here is his reply:

I run LifeLines 3.0.37.1. It doesn't coredump on
verify12.

Apparently the strsave() function is failing its
ASSERT. But I don't know why.

    I believe that Steve Dum fixed this in cvs -- ChangeLog entry records this at 2006-10-25.

    I just created release 3.0.53, which should include this fix.

    AFAIK, this is fixed in the latest releases.

    Would you mind retesting at your convenience?

    This is fixed since 3.0.52.

    Sorry the last was a typo, not 3.0.52, but 3.0.53 fixed it.

    I did build from CVS between the two releases and it was fixed.

    Great; thanks for reporting it, and thanks for testing it!

    Closing as fixed.
