NhlNewMarker core dump

I'm wanting to use the NhlNewMarker routine to make a filled square. I'm
following exactly the first example in the documentation for the
function. This works fine on my Mac, but core dumps on Bluefire (NCAR's
IBM AIX). I've simplified this routine to:

load "$NCARG_ROOT/lib/ncarg/nclscripts/csm/gsn_code.ncl"

  wks = "x11"
  plotfile = "test"
  vwks = gsn_open_wks(wks,plotfile)
; define a square filled marker for use for each ob
   mstring = "y"
   fontnum = 35
   xoffset = 0.0
   yoffset = 0.0
   ratio = 1.0
   size = 1.0
   angle = 0.0
   new_index = NhlNewMarker(vwks, mstring, fontnum, xoffset, yoffset,
ratio, size, angle)
   print ("marker defined")
