Well, after paying more attention to the error message...  It is the
debugger that is having the assertion failure on line 60 of fgets.c.  So, I
am unable to debug it very well.  I have ??? all over the debugger in place
of anything useful.  I will see if I can install another debugger and try to
do better.  I have Softice somewhere around here.

For what it is worth:
