Hmm, sadly that could be tricky, since the file it died on
was an email database I probably should throw about. :-)
I'll try and find some other way of blowing it up, or look
for the bug myself... (backing up a couple of weeks doesn't
make it go away, sadly)
[The version of sort in -1-5-RELEASE doesn't have this
problem, but IIUC the whole sort program has been newly
imported and overhauled since then.]
