Thanks for your suggestion, Derek, that it is related to libofx.  I
poked around and discovered the program ofxdump, and it also failed on
the file I have been trying to read.  So I went and got libofx version
0.8.2, compiled it and tried it.  The new version of ofxdump does read
the file, and so does gnucash.

Thanks again.
