I had the same problem while I was running SRS v. 4.07 under IRIX 6.0.1 with GCG 
version 8.1 data files. Upgrading to 4.08 helped.

Later, I got a message from Thure saying that the problem lies in the changing format 
of GCG datafiles. Accorging to him, the file format is defined in file srsgeneral.sdl. 
Check that or contact Thure for details.
