Problem solved! Thanks to Chester Patterson's kind help, this hangup was
solved by doing

before running format. It was stopping at the end of the screen (thus the
neat boundary for where the numbering ended).

mention this. Not a word about it in the Burke and Burke manual. They
must have been plagued with support calls from folks like me. I guess I
"should have known" to turn off scroll pause.
