please check your input carefully with hexdump to make 
sure you have no non-ascii characters in there. with some
fonts it is hard to tell. i'm attaching a wrapper script that 
i use myself, which is little bit easier to read (at least for
me, as it emulates the hexdumper display that i was
using back in the days when i was hacking 6502 processors 
which almost broke the 1MHz barrier...). i miss begin able
to fix bugs in running programs by replacing goto opcodes 
with NOPs... ;-)
