Hello,

There is at least one layout package I know of that will report "dangling lines" and 
their x:y coordinates.  Also, I have been told that running the database through 
Specctra will remove dangling lines.  Though I have never witnessed the process, it 
might be worth looking into.

Cheers!
Drew
