We are not using the standard batch parse command, but piping lisp
commands to bin/logon. I attach a file containing the commands sent to
bin/logon. Since the error occurs after parsing, I suspect it is
originating from the compare-in-detail function.

I forgot to mention that I do not see the error when I parse and
compare the profile from the [incr tsdb()] podium, at least not in the
Emacs lisp buffer.

Unfortunately I don't know what might have changed to cause the
failure. Our testing code has not changed WRT commands sent to LOGON
for some time.

If it helps, here are the options we use when we pipe the commands (in
the attachment) to bin/logon.

${LOGONROOT}/bin/logon -I base -locale no_NO.UTF-8 -qq

You may also test this yourself by checking out the matrix repository
(blank password):

svn co --username guest svn://lemur.ling.washington.edu/shared/matrix/trunk

...and running the regression test (from the trunk directory)

python matrix.py r tiniest

Let me know if you need anything else
