So simple, and I never tried such a thing!
Dammit, I grovelled through the -devel and -users archives for quite a
while to see if this was already known (it seemed so glaring a problem).
Sorry to waste your time, folks and thank you for the prompt response.
Might I propose the FGFS gods avoid causing pointless grief for newbies
and insert a fragment of code in the command-line parsing to the effect
/* KLUDGE: FIXME: avoid hang when starting on a tile boundary */
if (startup_long == floor(startup_long)) startup_long += 0.0001;
if (startup_lat == floor(startup_lat)) startup_lat += 0.0001;
