QuickCAD error leading to Page Fault Crash

Hello --
I'm working with a set of Architecture drawings, not complicated.
While using Intellimouse to move the view, I started getting an
error message box that said "Can't find row 51 in table 9". I
clicked "OK", and the message box came back. This repeated 10 or
15 times. Then I got a crash message: "Page Fault etc caused by
module SX2.DLL at 0167:102a5fef...". Restarted and and reloaded
everything from scratch. Same thing happened again. Started QC
again, loaded a different drawing, everything seems to work ok.
Any suggestions? This apparently all stems from the following
actions: a foundation outline drawing was saved from TurboCAD,
using TC's .dxf extension, to its own drawing file, then opened in
QC as a .dxf file, then saved in a normal QC.CAD file, then copied
to the clipboard, then pasted into the drawing that's giving
trouble. I thought it would have been pretty clean by then. It
may be that I will have to remove the foundation drawing from my
working file, but I can't seem to get anywhere without the crash
sequence starting.

Thanks for any help --
Will

Found the problem: When the drawing was brought in from TurboCAD,
several construction lines were left in the original. In the
translation process, they were shrunk to tiny, short lines. When I
finally located them, I deleted them, and everything began to work
ok. Unfortunately, I didn't do an "Entity inquire" on them, so I
don't know how QC interpreted them. Bottom line: beware foreign
construction lines.
