The most common case for getting the "premature ..." error message is:

- something is wrong in your Interchange page
- something is wrong your UserTag or GlobalSub function
- something is wrong with another program, who has to serve Interchange
with any datas.

In most common case, you get an error message in you Interchange and/or
catalog directory.
Look into the file error.log and you get a hint.
