This runtime error is most likely caused by a bug in the
gsdlsrcrecptcgiwrapper.cpp source file provided with gsdl-2.38. Try
commenting out the line that reads "cerr = errout;".

As described in a previous message, wvWare (the word to html converter
greenstone uses) is broken in gsdl-2.38. More specifically, it depends on
cygwin being installed in order to work properly. Try downloading and
installing cygwin from http://www.cygwin.com and see if the problem
importing word files persists. You can safely ignore the warning about text
being imported as UTF-8 and not iso-8859-1.

Stefan.
