The netseg from net 153 passes through my makenl here, without problem
or reported error. Currently I use Davd Nugent's NLMAKE from 1999.

fwiw, I can trigger the error anytime I want on Janis' system by
flagging any node down. It's happened in the past when net 140, net 342, and
this time when net 153 flagged a node down. Removing the "down" keyword, or
totally deleting the node seems to solve the problem.

As I stated above, there is NO error generated whan I run NLMAKE.EXE
