I ran into the same thing.  The workaround for me was to comment out the
following line in the .map file:

> LINESET /AOLserver/servers/server1/pages/ms_demo/symbols/line.sym

I'm not sure what the cause is, probably a change in the line symbol
file format???  I didn't look into it further because I didn't need
line.sym anyways.

Good Luck!

  Don't put for tomorrow what you can do today, because if 
      you enjoy it today you can do it again tomorrow.
