 problem in msdos 'formats'

Has anyone experienced problems using 'format' statements when
printing fields from gdbm assoc arrays?  Without gdbm I can't seem
to reproduce the problem.  It only seems to occur with > 3/4 fields.
One symptom is that entries from the database get zeroed just before
printing, the other symptom is stack overflow and/or crash.
It doesn't happen when using Len Reed's perl286 and high memory.  It
also works ok with UNIX compiled perl/gdbm.

I'm trying to form a minimal example program.  

Any ideas?
