Error messages: source code line is blank

I have a general problem with the NCL interpreter. When I have a syntax
error in my script, a fairly informative error message is printed. The
message seems to attempt to show the offending line of source code, a
common feature in modern compilers. However, the printed line is blank.

Is there a fix for this? A typical session and my uname are shown
below. Thank you.
