My apologies.  At the bottom of the function, it calls through the function 

        RmgrTable[rmid].rm_desc(buf, record);

which is set up to call various *_desc functions.  I must have chased through
those function pointers incorrectly, as I can't find the problem now that I am
reviewing all those functions.

Sorry for the noise,

Mark Dilger
