The return code is r(198) and that is clearly stated.

What does "40cm from the display" mean?

Is there something near the monitor/computer that is causing the error
(in no way meant to be facetious, but perhaps the user), or are you
using -trace- to findout where the error is occuring and its 40 lines
prior to exiting all code and returning to the prompt?
