Fatal Errors with blixem/dotter

Wondering if anyone could help with a blixem/dotter problem when called
from acedb:
After calling up blixem on a Pep_homol, a sequence from the alignment
is seleted for 'Dotter HSPs only'.  The first one usually works,
provided the sequence is either in the database, or is fetchable.  But
the second one always crashes the session, leaving this error message:
!! FATAL ERROR 0: !! Cannot get box 3 - index out of range
I have traced this error back in the source, and it seems to arise after
a call to gBoxGet() after being called from graphBoxDraw() which is
called from highlightProteinboxes() in dotter.c. (mouthful)
I have used the standard makefile for 'SOLARIS_4_RELEASE', and 
compiled it on a sparc-20.
Anyone else have these problems on this or another platform?  
Any help appreciated.
