PHYLIP is _not_ dumb!    ;-)

Sounds mysterious.  If you show me the file, I can see if I can see
anything wrong with it.  I don't know what DOS error 2001 is (sounds
futuristic) but I seem to recall a "bus error" in Unix is some file
reading problem (you'd think it meant that there was a hardware problem
with the system bus, but no ...)
