Thats the exact same error I am still having (See my post from a while ago
about Memory Overrun Somewhere)  The only responce I got here was to upgrade
to bpl13, which I haven't been able to do yet (hopefully next few days.)
Commenting out the line will make it work, but it does not solve the
underlying problem of the memory overrun.  I am using Oasis 1.6b and
MobProgs, without the 128-bit patch.  If you get anywhere on finding it,
please tell me as I've spent too much time on this bug already, and I'll be
sure to do the same.
