Quite true.  I dusted it off and reused that code in our hacked up REFORMAT
program, which has an option 

/GAPs=file.mrk   Write "." over ranges read from a gap file, which is 
                 formatted like a GCG "mark" file.  If no extension is
                 specified it defaults to ".mrk"

The user tried to make a second mark file from an existing one by commenting
out some ranges, and that turned up this bug.
