       You must not close the graphics window with the close ICON.
       Pressing <Enter> or <ESC> will let the program proceed.
       You can also type H for help or 
                         Q to suppress the graphics display.
       You can suppress the graphics by using the !NODISPLAY qualifier
       on the datafilename line.
       Closing the graphics window any other ways causes ASREML to crash

   The file name you have given above as xx must have included an m
   I will try and resolve this problem.

       The !M qualifier expects a number, not a character.
       If you had missing values indicated by say -
       ASREML could not recognise them (!M-  would be invalid
       and - is not a standard MV indicator (. * or NA)
       You would have to change it with the editer first.
