I spoke a little too soon.  op=tq is failing intermittently and
leaving an error in error.log.  op=aq appears to leave the same error
each time.  Here it is:

search error: Limit subroutine creation: Bad code: syntax error at
(tag 'value') line 8, near "] tqsearch term "

If I use op=rm it never fails or produces that error in error.log.
Could this be because I'm on IC 5.2?  Is there a particular file or
set of files I should grab from CVS to try and fix this?
