PANIC: Top-of-file arch tag crosses 1k boundary

Any ideas?  I don't have any arch-tags at the top of files.  I do
have some in very small files, however, that I suppose could be
interpreted as the "top" even though they are closer to the
bottom than the top.


Try to avoid one bug, you get another. The rationale was that ids were being truncated when their tags crossed the 1K boundary. Rather than fix it hastily, a PANIC was added, to prevent tla from silently doing the wrong thing.

Your fix *may* be to move the tags to the tops of the affected files. However, your ids may already be truncated. If it looks like an add/delete, you'll want to truncate by hand, in order to match the truncation that was happening silently before. You can use tla 1.2 to determine where the truncation was happening.
