tag does not fit model error 4.9t

Hi all!

Yes, I'm still kicking around with AceDB :-)

I'm experiencing a peculiarity that has me a bit befuddled.  I did the 

1)  I have a models.wrm and a bunch of .ace files generated from a dump 
of  the associated database.
2)  I start up ACE  (4.9t) and initiatlize a new database with this 
models.wrm file.
3)  I start to read in the ACE files (b.t.w. why don't they all read in 
one after another like they used to?)
4)  I get an error in my Protein class saying that tag DNA_homol does 
not fit model.
5)  I look at the offending line in the .ace file and it is simply

Protein : xxxx
DNA_homol  yyyy

6)  I look at what is loaded into the database, and it has in fact been 
written into the DB!
7)  I open the "offending" Protein record, and make a dump of *just* 
that record.
8)  I look at the two .ace files side by side and they are 100% identical.

How can it be that Ace can read in a record, claim that there is an 
error, read it in regardless, and then dump out exactly the same 
"erroneous" record?  you'll have to trust me that the error message is 
incorrect,and that DNA_homol is, in fact, a valid tag in the model :-)

Any advice is welcome!!

Cheers all!
