procob problem

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 16 May 2012]

We were using Procob18 and now moved to Procob Oracle 11 compiler. For both Server Express and Visual Cobol for Eclipse on Linux the precompiler is adding an empty line with a just a dot in it. It doesn't always happen and we don't know exaclty when. We suspect it happens when an IF clause is ended by a dot and not by an END-IF.
Has anybody encountered this problem? any idea for a solution?
