That message is misleading; it is issued for any record in the index,
status, or sortcache files. The error message is returned by an fgets()
that returns a buffer that does not end with newline.
The most likely explanation is that either the index or status files got
whacked by your power failure. Check the index file; I suspect that
you'll find the problem there. Unfortunately, you'll have to fix it by
An index file rebuild tool is at the top of my to-do list.
