When attempting to read a file, I go into what seems to be a loop inside RATOM inside RATOMS.  It looks like it is trying desperately to cause an EOF error, but somehow that isn''t happening.  It seems to be running around in things like realframep, breakcheck, etc.'
Maybe that RATOMS isn''t the right thing to call there; it might be looking for the atom STOP, which isn''t to be found on USER.CM files.'
When the [bravo] section of the was the last section, but the had junk after it, the reader would loop.  (e.g. the had a bravo trailer)'
