If you did have such a system, how would you troubleshoot this
problem? In other words, can you suggest how Bengt and I should
proceed? (I'm on Digital UNIX 4.0G.)

I've pretty well determined that the offending string function call is
in trans2.c; is there a way we can instrument that source file to get
some information about which specific function call is causing our
unsafe_usage error? There are 27 calls in trans2.c that could
potentially be replaced by the unsafe_usage string, so it would be
very helpful to narrow that down. :)
