This sounds like something that has caught me several times. When
using old documents with the new lout you have to delete any old
database files (loud.ld, lout.li, my-doc.ld, my-doc.ld.ld. etc.).
Otherwise a whole raft of strange errors ensue.  I stuffed around with
my lout source for a fair while before I came to my senses :-)

This could be mentioned in the install docs somewhere, I probably read
it and forgot it.

It would be nice if lout checked the version of database files before
using them, and purged out-of-date files.
