Syntax Error: OMS Only Works During Step Through

I have a syntax file that will only run correctly when I step through the code line by line; otherwise, it errors out when I try to activate the dataset I just created with OMS. The program reports that the dataset doesn't exist, although I don't see any error reported during the OMS or OMSEND operations.

I tried commenting out the code and uncommenting it line by line, but I didn't get consistent results: sometimes it would run correctly, other times it would error out in the same place. I then reverted to a previous version of the syntax file (a known good file), and it too crashes with the same error message. I tried opening and closing SPSS, and even copied the syntax into a new syntax file.

Has anyone else experienced something like this? The syntax file ran fine yesterday, and the previous version worked all last year.
