If you were the person dropping by on IRC, then I was the one 
suggesting that you had an older version of onsgmls, and I still think 
that's the case. My hunch is that you have the "old" onsgmls installed 
in /usr/bin/onsgmls and the new one in another path, possibly 

How to check:
- try '/usr/bin/onsgmls -v', not just 'onsgmls -v'. If it gives a 
version other than 1.5.1, then my assumption is correct.
- locate onsgmls (if your system has a locate DB) for different 
versions of the binary on your system
