```I have procedural function "ordermat." It works ok if the next-to-last (useless) line is there but
if I remove that one line, I get error messages due to the last line,  at execution time:

Set::write: Tag Times in Null\{0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, \[LeftSkeleton]1\
\[RightSkeleton]} is Protected.

("intersect" returns a small integer and computes "tafr.")

I've seen bugs like this before. I'm using 5.0.1.0 with Windows. Any clues? Thanks in advance.

ordermat[gon_] := Module[{row, rx, cx},
gonl = Length[gon];
matx = Table[0, {i, 1, gonl}, {j, 1, gonl}];
gona = Join[gon, gon];
For [ rx = 1, rx <= gonl, rx++,
row  = Table[0, {2*gonl}];
row[[rx]] = 1;
row[[rx + 1]] = 2;
ab = gona[[rx]];
ae = gona[[rx + 1]];
For [ cx = 1, cx <= gonl - 3, cx++,
bb = gona[[cx + rx + 1]];
be = gona[[cx + rx + 2]];
int = intersect[ab, ae, bb, be];
If [ int == 3, row[[cx + rx + 1]] = tafr + 1];
]
rx;                  (*   Error unless some expression is here.?? *)
matx[[rx]] = Table[Max[row[[i]], row[[i + gonl]]], {i, gonl}];
]
]
