No, the previous version did have a newline. I always put in a
newline! So, it worked on 12.0 OSX 10.72, but did not work on 12.1. I
did verify that there was a newline. What made it work was adding
another newline.

I just received another email from my colleague who wrote, "crashed
again on convertdate.ado with same error. Very frustrating!"
