Well, looking quickly, it first tries this format without the chain id:

then this one with the chain id:

and finally the one below, and fails on all. Indeed, there is a 
suspicious inconsistency between the first 2 format statements near the 
first floating point numbers.

Pasha, would it be possible to send the original .ms file that generated 
this error?

Eric, do you know which of "1x,2f8.3,f9.3,1x" or "1x,f7.3,2f9.3,1x" is 
more accurate?
